Workers prepare return to WIPP next week CARLSBAD (AP) — Employees at the federal gover nment’s troubled nuclear waste dump in southeastern New Mexico are preparing to enter the facility’s underground mine for the first time since a radiation leak contaminated workers last month. The U.S. Department of Energy announced Saturday that 35 workers have undergone training simulations at a Potash mine before re-entry next week into the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). Employees went through
Best in show
a two-hour underground session using protective gear and air -breathing units, officials said. Workers spent this week training for various scenarios that could occur in the mine. According to the Department of Energy, the plan is for workers to set up an operating camp near a salthandling shaft and then check for a secondary exit in the shaft that controls air flow. After that, they will focus on finding the source of the radiation release. The repository near
Carlsbad stopped taking all waste shipments after an underground truck fire on Feb. 5. Nine days later, a radiation release shuttered the plant. A series of shortcomings in maintenance, safety training, emergency response and oversight were cited by a team that investigated the truck fire. The New Mexico Environment Department withdrew a preliminary permit this week for the dump’s request to expand its facility, citing the fire and the leak. It is unclear, however, if
the two incidents are related. The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant is the nation’s only permanent underground repository for low-level radioactive waste, including things like plutonium-contaminated gloves, tools and protective clothing, from nuclear weapons facilities. With the nuclear waste dump shuttered, operators for the plan made an agreement with Waste Control Specialists to ship radioactive waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory to rural west Texas.

Sheriff candidate Graves hopes for better future JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
Candidate Gary Graves has a color ful past that includes his recall from office as De Baca County sheriff, a foiled attempt to find Billy the Kid and the permanent loss of his state law enforcement certification. Graves is not hiding from any of it, he said. He is running for sherif f of Chaves County to help the citizens go forward as a better community, he said. “I have nothing to hide. I’m wide open,” Graves said. “It’s all there in living color. I’m not ashamed of anything. I stand tall and will stand tall again, and that’s why I’m here.” Graves, who still calls
himself “Sheriff,” began his career in law enforcement at age 18 and spent the better part of 21 years in the field. He has maintained a home in Chaves County his entire life, he said. “I was born at St. Mary’s Hospital and attended the schools here,” Graves said. “I care about this community. It’s my home. My family is a respected name in this community. I’m very proud of them. They gave me a good family raising. They taught me morals and values. They didn’t spare the belt, and that’s a good thing.” Graves is also a competitive shooter and competes throughout the U.S., he said. He can fire 26 to 32 rounds in 11 to 13 seconds
with accuracy. He mentors and teaches children in shooting sports. “I shoot for the fun of it, but there are times that we win things,” Graves said. Graves worked for several police and sherif f’s departments in the region, including the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office two different times, from 1985 to 1999. He reached a pinnacle in his career when he was elected sheriff of De Baca County in 2002. Graves’ time in of fice resulted in several highprofile incidents. A move by citizens resulted in a petition for a recall election that included a hearing with a judge deter-

State police investigated the crash. The plane continued to leak fuel following the crash, but the owners said the plane could likely be repaired to be airworthy in the future.

Job seekers in Chaves County will be in for an “out of this world” experience in April when New Mexico Workforce Connection hosts its annual job fair at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center. Roswell’s Out of the World Job Fair will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on April 9 at the convention center, and attendance is free for both employers and job seekers, said Nellie Daniel, Workforce Connection employment specialist. “We have 35 employers signed up as of today,” Daniel said on Friday morning, “and the deadline for employers to sign up will be March 26.” Partnering with Workforce Connection in hosting the job fair will be ItsQuest
Inc., Eastern New Mexico University Roswell, Division of Vocational Rehab, Goodwill, SL Start, and Congressman Steve Pearce. “We have several employers who have numerous positions they are looking to fill, and we have one employer who just has one opening,” Daniel said. “The main thing is to get people jobs, that is what we’re all about.” Daniel said Workforce Connection often pairs with the business community to help fill openings. “When Marshall’s came to town last year, we worked with them in finding employees,” Daniel said. “I really enjoy working with businesses and helping them to find good employees.” Job seekers are encour-

“I was one of the first 300 or 400 off the march to enter Camp O’Donnell, and they (prisoners) began dying that same day,” Love told the Albuquerque Jour nal in a 2009 interview. He estimated he carried more than 1,000 bodies to the graveyard. For the remainder of the war, Love was forced to work in a Japanese copper mine until being liberated in 1945.
After the war, he enrolled at the University of New Mexico and graduated in 1950. He worked at Conoco Inc. for 35 years and lived in El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston and Arlington, Texas, with his wife, Laura Bernice Ellis, who died in 2000.

Bataan Death March survivor Love dies at 91 ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — John E. Love, a Bataan Death March survivor who led a campaign to change the caption on a historic march photo from The Associated Press, has died. He was 91. Love died Monday after a long battle with cancer, said Gerry Lightwine, pastor at La Vida Llena, an Albuquerque retirement home where Love lived. As a 19-year-old member of the New Mexico Guard, Love was one of 75,000 Filipino and American soldiers who were taken captive by the Japanese in World War II when the U.S. forces surrendered in the province of Bataan and Corregidor Island in April 1942. In all, tens of thousands of troops were forced to march to Japanese prison camps in what became known as the Bataan Death March. Many were denied food, water and medical care, and those who collapsed during the scorching jour ney through Philippine jungles were shot or bayo-

Campaign manager admits Hatch Act filing

JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
Republican Gary Graves is a candidate for Chaves County sheriff.
mining that Graves had committed malfeasance — a wrongful act or misconduct — while in office. The hearing did not result in any charges filed against Graves. The allegations included an incident when witnesses said Graves deputized a helicopter spraying crew so he could shoot coyotes. Another issue was with $2,000 cash that was found in a minivan of a Mexican national family. All but $50 was returned to the woman. Graves reportedly maintained possession of the funds. A witness also testified that Graves had used duct tape and pepper spray in the jail on inmates. “We answered each and every allegation,” Graves said. “A lot of the allegations, if research is done, you would find out a lot of it is political.” Graves said he thought two witnesses perjured themselves. “It was absolutely almost ridiculous,” he said. The hearing resulted in a recall election Nov. 9, 2005. The vote of 576 to 150 ended in Graves’ departure. Graves attempted to have the recall election stopped, but a court appeal failed. He said he had a lot of support by ranchers and ranchingbased people and the other side “basically began to threaten people and people voted against me,” he said. “I made $29,100 before taxes,” Graves said. “I would have needed
$50,000 (to fight it). I let it go and went on to retire.” The New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy has since revoked his law enforcement certification permanently. Graves was unsuccessful in an attempt to regain it in December. He can still serve as an elected sheriff without certification. Graves also made a name for himself as a member of a three-man posse that attempted to solve the mystery of how Billy the Kid met his end. In 2003, Lincoln County Sherif f Tom Sullivan, Deputy Sherif f Steve Sederwall and Graves were tasked by Gov. Bill Richardson to solve the mystery. The crew filed petitions to ask for the exhumation of the Kid’s mother, Catherine Antrim in Silver City, meeting resistance from the locals who didn’t want the remains to be unearthed. “I did it mainly to protect the interest of the resident of De Baca County,” Graves said. “I did it to bring in millions in revenue. I didn’t care if he was there or he wasn’t there. I cared about my community. It did help our tourism base.” Graves said a sherif f must be willing to step forward and be proactive, not reactive. “That’s something I do well,” Graves said. “It’s about a community of officers that go forward to work together to stop crime before it happens. We can’t put numbers on that, and it’s not easy to always fund issues.” It’s about helping the
Orie “O.L.” Adcock admitted that he filed a federal complaint against Chaves County sheriff candidate Britt Snyder for what he thinks is a violation of an elections law. Adcock, the campaign manager for Snyder’s opponent Gary Graves, denied that the move was part of a campaign strategy. “I am his campaign manager, but if you know my history, this is not anything new for me,” Adcock said. “I’ve been pestering politicians for years. It has nothing to do with (Graves).” Adcock said he began looking into the complaint in October after requesting a large number of public information documents from the sheriff’s office. Snyder announced his candidacy a month prior to that. “I’m a private citizen, doing what I think is best,” Adcock said. “I started making the questions on the Hatch Act stuff back in October, long before the filing. It’s not part of the campaign. I like all the candidates. And think all but one or two would make good sheriffs. But the thing is, you better have your nose clean if you’re going after somebody else.” The Hatch Act restricts the political activity of employees who work
with programs financed in whole or part by the federal government and is generally a guideline for federal employees who run for office. The act was revised in 2012 to cut down on unfair claims of violations. Graves denied any knowledge of the Hatch Act complaint Wednesday, saying he intends to run a clean campaign. But he said he felt strongly that sheriffs should not use federal funds. “I believe strongly in working with all other agencies. I also believe very quickly we need to be cautious on the federal funding we accept in the sheriff’s office,” Graves said. The sheriff is a constitutional officer who is mentioned in the constitution as the only mentioned law enforcement position, he said. “And he is to be separate and above in his own entity,” Graves said. “He is funded by county funds and state funds, not by federal funding. And whenever sheriffs begin to taint themselves with federal funding and they lose their authorities and powers to protect their citizens in the community.” Snyder said Wednesday he was not paid by the federal government in any way and was certain the complaint was a “waste of time.”

ceramics and velvet paintings. Velvet paintings, which Moore calls “fuzzy pictures,” are another favorite art project, and Moore often gives his artwork away to friends. “I’m working on a butterfly right now,” he says. “They aren’t my favorite, but it’s for a friend.” Moore’s Facebook page boasts samples of his artwork, and he often posts a new painting as his profile photo, he said. “When I get a new painting, I just look at it and dream what colors to make it,” Moore said. For five years, Moore has been working at Papa Murphy’s, where he especially enjoys preparing Cheesy Bread. He says the best part of working at Papa Murphy’s is his bosses. “I really like being with my bosses, they are my friends.” He also enjoys the company of his cat, Klaus, named for the talking goldfish from “American Dad!” Recently, Moore was honored as Citizen of the Year in Albuquerque by the Long Term Services Division of New Mexico, a testament not only to Moore’s ability to learn and grow over the years, but also to Moore’s winning smile and friendly nature. When Moore first came to Tobosa, he required 24hour supervision, but now he lives independently with little staff support, says Tony Strange, support specialist and Moore’s friend. Moore said he was born in Albuquerque, but moved to Roswell in his 30s after his grandmother passed away. Shortly after the move, he discovered Tobosa. “Jesse needs very little supervision now, he pretty much does what he wants,” Strange said. Moore said his typical day includes lots of music, riding the Pecos T ransit to the church to volunteer or to work, or
just going around town on errands. When Moore received the Citizen of the Year award, it was a statewide honor bestowed by the Department of Health, said Steve Kane, adult service coordinator for Tobosa. “That was an award for the individual who best exemplifies all the really good things that can happen,” Kane said. “Jesse’s achievements show how much one individual can achieve with a little guidance and help.” “I was so surprised, I did not know it was going to happen,” Moore said of his winning Citizen of the Year. Moore was also honored within the Tobosa family last fall with an Individual Achievement Award, which included a $500 prize. Besides his volunteer work with the Good Samarian Program, Moore is active in Tobosa programs and committees. Moore has also traveled to Santa Fe to meet with legislators on developmental disabilities legislation. Asked what he likes most about Tobosa, Moore cites his independence. “I like being independent, and I am happy being around Tony,” Moore says. “He doesn’t need anyone to tell him where he has to be, or when he has to be there,” Strange said. “We’re just there to support him if he needs help with something he can’t do, or help with transportation.” “Jesse really enjoys helping others and is always excited to volunteer and give back to his community,” Joe Madrid, Tobosa CEO/executive director said of Moore. “Jesse is very proud of his accomplishments and enjoys sharing them with others. Jesse has also encouraged others to be more independent and has encouraged others to follow his lead and be more independent.”

What is it about Western leaders from Neville Chamberlain to George W. Bush who want to find good in men of bad character? Acting as if he were endowed by special insight bestowed upon no one else, President George W. Bush declared in 2001 that he had looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and "was able to get a sense of his soul." According to the Daily Caller.com, in a 2010 interview with talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Bush, who was promoting his book "Decision Points," was asked about his ability to see into the souls of men. The for mer president explained, "The reason why I said that is because I remembered him talking movingly about his mother and the cross that she gave him that she said she had blessed in Jerusalem."
Well, bless my soul, as the saying goes. No doubt several communist leaders in the for mer Soviet Union had mothers who went to church and took their sons with them -- until faith became a drag on upward mobility in the Communist Party. It doesn't mean any one of them underwent some drastic religious transformation. What Bush should have asked Putin is whether he shared his
Roswell Daily Record
mother's faith and if so, what difference that had made on his thinking? Usually when people "convert" from one belief system to another they give a reason for the shift. Not so with Putin. He has not walked the sawdust trail of redemption and embraced pluralistic, democratic or capitalistic beliefs. Quite the opposite. In a 2005 state of the nation speech, Putin declared: "Above all, we should acknowledge that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a major geopolitical disaster of the century. As for the Russian nation, it became a genuine drama. Tens of millions of our cocitizens and co-patriots found themselves outside Russian territory. Moreover, the epidemic of disintegration infected Russia itself." In the Hewitt interview, Bush
claimed that since that early meeting with Putin, the Russian leader had become a different person. The other possibility is that Putin has always been the same person, but lied and projected a dif ferent image to a gullible Bush who wanted to believe what he thought he saw. Putin and his cronies are now openly mocking the United States. Under President Obama we are becoming a humiliation nation. Meaningless "sanctions," which amount to not even a slap on the wrist, are laughed at in Moscow. And the problem with sanctions is that Russia has options, too, like cutting off gas and oil supplies to Europe and making trouble in other former Soviet republics. Recently, Russian news anchor Dmitry Kiselyov took to the Rossiya 1 news chan-
nel to declare that Russia is the only country capable of turning the United States into "radioactive ashes." A picture of a mushroom cloud was projected on the screen behind him. Iran might see this bragging by Russia as a challenge to its own nuclear ambitions. Understanding one's adversary is sometimes more important than defeating him, especially if one wishes to avoid armed conflict. The fall of the Berlin Wall was the symbolic collapse of the Soviet Union and occupied Eastern Europe. Putin clearly believes Russia was humiliated after the collapse and the American triumphalism that followed.

State Sen. Owen Hill, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, told The Gazette on Monday he will bow out of the race to help ensure victory for U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner. He wants Gardner to unseat U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, a Boulder Democrat. "My passion is to protect the future for my kids, and Cory has the best chance to defeat Mark Udall," Hill told The Gazette. "Udall and President Obama take money out of our communities to fund Washington bureaucracies and I know Cory (Gardner) will help put an end to it." Hill's move comes after State Rep. Amy Stephens and Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck stepped aside to make room for Gardner, who is widely considered a formidable threat to Udall. Hill's exodus leaves only Gardner and State Sen. Randy Baumgardner in the Republican race heading into the April 12 state assembly. Though an effective and affable senator, considered safe a few months back, Udall made himself vulnerable by enthusiastically supporting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As Obamacare has taken hold, the law has become a public policy fiasco for the ages. It will continue hurting Colorado families and businesses. Gone is the support of ill-informed voters who thought Obama and congressional Democrats were giving them health care. That phenomenon of ignorance has been replaced by newfound skepticism of government that could benefit Republicans. If Republicans are serious about unseating Udall, they will go into the state assembly as a house united. Baumgardner, a respected public servant with good future prospects, could help by following the lead of Buck, Stephens and Hill. He should consider stepping aside and putting his full support behind Gardner. The fact three good candidates have stepped aside attests to Gardner's promise and strength. His competitors have made great personal sacrifice, setting aside their own self-interests and ambitions, to invest in prospects. Hill, in his written statement, said he will endorse Gardner if the candidate wins the state assembly or "until my friend and colleague Randy Baumgardner decides what he will do." "We must avoid a contentious primary election that only leaves the winner bruised and battered before heading into the allimportant general election in November," Hill explained in a written statement. "This is a mistake repeated year after year in Colorado and one I won't allow to be repeated again." Hill's wisdom reflects his promising future as an asset of the Republican Party. If Republicans believe their platform can and should benefit society, they cannot continue losing. They must become at least as politically savvy as their Democratic counterparts. Yes, Democrats have stuck our state and country with bad policies. But Democrats, unlike Republicans, are masterful politicians on average. They know how to win. Colorado is no longer a Republican state by any stretch of reasoning. With Democrats controlling both chambers of the Colorado Legislature, the state's executive branch, both Senate seats and three of seven House districts, Republicans control almost nothing. They stand the possibility this year of losing House District 6, represented by former Secretary of State Mike Coffman. In Gardner's former district, the Fourth, candidate Buck faces a primary opponent so extreme he compares homosexuality to murder and advocated using the National Guard to confiscate medical marijuana cards. For Republicans, the path to victory is a decision to win. It means avoiding needless primary battles and holy wars about perceptions of who's the most ideologically pure. To stop President Barack Obama's crusade to fundamentally change the greatest country on Earth, Republicans must control both chambers of Congress. That means they must settle on candidates today and free them to fight for victories in November. Buck, Stevens and Hill understand the mission. We urge others to follow their lead.

Spring cleaning is a healthy tradition. If only politicians did it! They don't. When Barack Obama ran for president, he promised to clean house, "I'm not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every gover nment program just because it's there. There are some that don't work." I cheered when I heard that! But politicians always say they'll get rid of waste. Then, once in power, they spend more. Obama sure has. "We just need to cut back!" said Obama, the candidate. He promised to end "waste at the Economic Development Agency and the Export-Import Bank that's become little more than a fund for corporate welfare." Good for him. Yet both
programs thrive: The Ex-Im Bank just gave another $8 billion to Boeing, and the EDA spent $2 million to build a wine-tasting room and "culinary amphitheater." Taxpayers were also forced to give $150,000 to promote a puppet festival on Long Island, $98,000 to build an outhouse in Alaska, and a million dollars to "study the influence of romance through novels and film." Both the left and right denounce the other party's
spending, but expensive waste is supported by both. Neither party makes much effort to cut farm subsidies or NASA — or to end subsidies for big corporations, the people who need it least. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is the rare conservative critic of waste who doesn't spare the military. On my show this week, he points out that the Pentagon destroyed $7 billion worth of weapons in Afghanistan and Iraq instead of shipping them home. “That just shows you the inef ficiency," says Coburn. Mattie Duppler, of Americans for Tax Reform, likens recipients of gover nment handouts to ticks that suck the populace's blood. Welfare for businesses is even more harmful than welfare for poor people, because
it kills the free enterprise that creates real prosperity. "When you've got government putting its thumb on the scale," says Duppler, "saying this business deserves more attention, more money, more government support than another one, that's ... the centrally planned economy." Centrally planned economies bring stagnation and poverty. Many people concer ned about big government focus on high taxes. High taxes are bad, but I worry more about the spending. Spending is a tax. Since government has no money of its own, the spending money must come from you. Today I worry even more about the sheer quantity of
months afterward. But since it could be just one day, the time to act is immediately. You won't need a tetanus booster if you completed the primary tetanus series (usually done in childhood) and you are sure you have had a tetanus shot within the past five years. If it may have been more than five years since you had the booster, you will need one now. Most people can't remember when their last tetanus shot was. I can't, that's for sure. But my medical record contains the dates of all my immunizations, so I don't need a good memory. Check to see if your doctor has a record of all your immunizations, and ask for a copy. If you're not sure whether you ever had the primary tetanus series, then you will be given tetanus immune globulin. This is a preparation of antibodies, or immunefighting proteins, that are
directed against the tetanus. You will also be given the tetanus shot. On top of that, you will then be scheduled for future shots to complete the primary tetanus vaccine series. If you develop tetanus, you will be treated with antibiotics, tetanus immune globulin, anti-toxin and muscle relaxers. To prevent tetanus in the future, everyone should get a tetanus booster once every 10 years for life. My last one was on Jan. 5, 2005. I know, because I looked it up in my medical record.

Make sure to get a tetanus booster
DEAR DOCTOR K: Earlier today I cut my finger on an old nail while doing a home improvement project. Do I need a tetanus shot? How soon? DEAR READER: My advice is: Better safe than sorry. And getting tetanus will make anyone very sorry. I recommend that you contact your doctor immediately. This is especially true if the nail broke through your skin, and you are not sure when you had your last tetanus booster shot. Tetanus, also called lockjaw, is a life-threatening bacterial infection. A tetanus infection may develop after almost any type of skin injury, major or minor. The bacteria live in dirt and on dirty metal objects — like old nails. Once inside the skin, tetanus bacteria multiply and produce a toxin that affects the body's nerves. This toxin causes severe muscle spasms,

cramps and seizures. Spasms in the jaw muscles produce lockjaw: You cannot open your mouth. Spasms also occur in muscles of the throat, chest, abdomen, ar ms and legs. Most patients also get fever, blood pressure that swings between too high and too low, a fast heart rate, disturbances in the heart rhythm and sweating. If you don't receive proper treatment, you can die.
You can get symptoms as soon as one day after your injury, or as late as several

A new lease on life 29 years later OPINION
Roswell Daily Record
A new attitude brings a new world. If you want to change your world, change your attitude. Life is that simple. Life is that complex. Anyhow, after 29 years of marriage I have a new wife. My wife, Tanya, and I set out together the first week of January a year ago with a decision for healthy living. After a wedding, a honeymoon, children, and decades of marriage, our weight had crept up and pushed both of us into the “obese” category on weight charts. Our quality of life was fine, but I had to sleep with a CPAP mask on my face and because of lower back issues the clock was ticking on Tanya heading into a surgical procedure. We made a decision to make good short ter m choices in order to bring excellent long term results. Healthy living involves repeated good decisions on eating smart and maintaining an active lifestyle. Today, after losing 85 pounds and ten pants sizes, I am off my high cholesterol and high blood pressure medicine and I haven’t had to attach that blasted CPAP machine to my face in over a year. It is gathering dust and I don’t intend to ever put it on my face again. Life is great. Healthy living is well worth it. Tanya, after losing 50 pounds and five dress

rules. There are now 170,000 pages of federal laws and many more local rules. If you can't get a job, there's a good chance that this spider web of regulations is the reason why.
After recessions, employment used to bounce back quickly, but not this time. What employer wants to hire when doing so requires fighting incomprehensible complexity and risking punishment for violating some obscure rule? I'd be afraid to build a serious business. Today's laws are so complex even the lawyers don't understand them.

sizes, is more active than she has been since having children over 26 years ago. I used to push her to exercise over the decades of marriage to no avail, now she is pushing me to get out and walk with her. It is as if I have a new wife. And I like it. As I am writing this, we are traveling back from a conference of about 150 health coaches who have all made the same decision to choose healthy living. Talk about an upbeat group of individuals! Having made healthy choices those present at the conference had all conquered a prior lifestyle and were working to help others create health in their lives also. Recently, we had a meeting of almost 30 at our home of people who were choosing healthy living. Tanya, in her presentation, told the group assembled to look for opportunities to get exercise. A simple concept, but I lived 55 years of my life without this mentality. It is making a conscious choice to exercise your body in routine deci-
sions rather than to live life seeking to use the least energy possible. Why not? Over most of the history of mankind, man did not have the option of using remote controls or elevators. Let me see if I can break this further apart for you. We were recently on a vacation. The parking garage was in the basement. Our room was on the third floor. Each day we went out on a drive. When we returned back to the room, human nature said to conserve energy and hop on the elevator. Instead, we repeatedly walked up the three flights of stairs (even with our hands full of bags). Instead of asking the question “Is there a reason to take the elevator?” we asked the question, “Is there a reason not to take the elevator?” A different philosophy on life... We started each day with a brisk walk along the beach. In our swimsuits, we were basically getting the same sun as those sunbathing by the pool, except we were working on staying fit at the same time. While at the airport we got off the plane at gate 2 and our next flight was out of gate 39. Rather than hop on the shuttle, we chose to walk from gate to gate to exercise our bodies. After arriving at our gate,
And the clutter gets worse. Every day, regulators craft more rules. It's always more. If you're a regulator, and you don't add rules, you think you're not doing your job. So now that spring is about to arrive, let's give government that overdue cleaning. Eliminate half the 170,000 pages of federal laws, scrap useless Cabinet departments, and cut the $4 trillion in spending in half. We could move about so much more freely if our lives weren't buried in government's junk. Laws stop me from opening my own lemonade stand, dictate where kids must attend school, and forbid voluntary interactions between consenting adults. Clean this stuff away!
When gover nment is big, we become smaller. When we're trapped in the web of their rules, we don't innovate; we become passive. To clean house, pass the Stossel Rule. It's simple: For every new regulation bureaucrats pass, they must repeal five old ones. It would be a start. John Stossel is host of "Stossel" on the Fox Business Network.

ar m, concede territory and pay reparations. Hitler's rise to power two decades later was in large part due to his appeal to Ger man nationalism and pride, which is precisely Vladimir Putin's appeal to the Russian people. Putin has promised not to annex any territory beyond Crimea. We'll see if he keeps that promise. Meanwhile, it would be
nice if President Obama led on this matter instead of making the United States the laughingstock of the world's dictators and to our detriment, perhaps some of our allies. (Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.)

rather than sitting while making a cell phone call, we walked up and down the corridor further burning calories. Simple stuff, but enough choices strung together bring great results. When going to a store, why not park in the furthest spot away from the front door and get a short walk in? If the store is big enough, why not take a lap around the store once or twice before looking for what you are shopping for? When talking on your wireless phone at home, why not walk around the house at the same time? It is common for me to be working in my study and for me to see Tanya walk by over and over and over again as she is circling the house while engaged in a phone call. Why not? You are accomplishing two things at once. The world as Tanya and I see it has changed. No longer do we ask what is the least amount of energy that we can use in our daily lives. We look for opportunities to exercise the only bodies we will ever have. Additionally, schedule regular times to exercise and have an accountability partner. I run three days a week, two of the runs are with a friend. We both provide accountability for the other. The other critical aspect of healthy living is what we
put into our mouths. Without smart eating choices a person will not move out of an “obese” classification. For example, a person could go to a fitness gym and work out as hard as they could for an hour and maybe burn through 400600 calories. If she then eats a Big Mac, she has consumed 550 calories and has undone a one hour workout in less than 5 minutes. Many, while doing regular exercise workouts, don’t understand why they aren’t losing pounds. The reason is that the workouts don’t do much good if you are going to eat right back what you have worked off. It is really a discipline issue. Five minutes of enjoying a large piece of cheesecake or a chocolate bar can undo 60 minutes of exercise. Exercise is good, but for it to lead to healthy living, there needs to be some control of the intake of food. Calories in need to be less than calories out and there is only so much exercising a person can do. Every step you take multiplies the G force put on your joints three to five times. Thus, five pounds taken off will remove 15 to 25 pounds of force on your legs and feet. Twenty five pounds of weight loss will remove 75 to 125 pounds of force

each step you take. Do you think this doesn’t help your joints each step you take? Some things to think about if healthy living is important to you. My challenge to you is to choose to live healthy — whatever that looks like in your world. Living healthy not only adds years onto your life, it raises your quality of life. It may give you the opportunity to hold a newbor n great-grandchild someday. It may allow you to not need surgery in your later years because of poor choices in your earlier years. It may save your body from having to take medication for the rest of your life. God gave you one body. Like it or not, the body you have today will be the body you will end your years with. What you do with your body between now and your final day is up to you. A little bit of discipline will go a long way. Chose to create healthy habits! They will pay a lifetime of dividends.

Who’s Emily Post and does she care about dogs? STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION
A while back, a friend suggested that I should write a column that dealt with the issue of “dog walking etiquette.” Hmmm. I’ve struggled with that a little bit, because I really do try to keep to the general topic of safety. So, does walking our dogs have anything to do with safety? I’ve decided that it does … at least for today. I looked it up and it is pretty easy to find suggestions of things a considerate dog owner should keep in mind as we walk these lovable creatures. Amazing as it seems, the first comment made
on one article was “not everyone loves your pet.” We are reminded that just because you love your dog does not mean that everyone else will also enjoy a sloppy kiss or paws on their shoulders. We cannot assume that the entire neighborhood loves him. People don’t have to love your dog. Teach your dog about yards. Dog walking eti-
quette requires that you should keep your dog from going too far into yards, perhaps right up to the house. The dog can damage flowers and other landscaping, or can get into territorial disputes with dogs that live there. There are also yards that just have to be off limits. Some homeowners just do not want a dog nearby. They don’t want your dog to pee on their lawns or on their shrubs near the sidewalk. T ry to be awar e of and r espect such things, and avoid conflicts with property owners. You may need to cross the street when you appr oach some yar ds, and your dog should be trained to obey your commands when he wants to go too far
into a yard. A true safety issue can relate to keeping your dog off the road when a car is coming. Some streets are too narrow for cars, dogs, and the people who walk the dogs. A vehicle may not see the dog at all or it may be that the driver sees him and pays more attention to the animal than to driving his vehicle. You could actually be liable for damages caused in such cases. Make sure you have full control of your dog if you must use the road for your walk. The most obvious issue pertaining to etiquette is, of course, dog waste. Pick up the poop! It certainly can cause damage to grass and plants, and is a big pr oblem when
Millions of kids to test new education assessments
WASHINGTON (AP) — What's on the new Common Core-based exams? More than 4 million kids in U.S. schools soon will have a clue. Field testing begins this coming week in 36 states and the District of Columbia on assessments developed by two different groups of states. Participating students will be asked to sit for hours in front of a computer or use a No. 2 pencil to answer questions. But there's no need for kids to worry. The scores won't count, this time. The actual exam-testing won't be used for another year. The Common Core standards spell out what math and English skills students should have at each grade, and are designed to develop more critical thinking skills than traditional school work. They were first pushed by governors concerned about the large number of high school graduates needing remedial college help and lacking basic skills. Most states have adopted them. The field tests, to be conducted until June, are a big step forward in the push to more fully integrate the new academic standards into the school environment. They will give education officials a chance to judge things such as the quality of each test
question and the technical capabilities of schools to administer the tests, which are computer -based but also will be available on paper. But they also come as the standards face political push-back in many states Indiana lawmakers, for example, last year paused implementation of the standards and a measure ending the state's participation is at the governor's desk. House lawmakers in Tennessee passed legislation that would delay implementation — and testing — under Common Core for two years, but that proposal hasn't been taken up in the Senate. Common Core supporters hope the field tests provide an opportunity to highlight the best of Common Core. "There's been a lot of talk and a lot of planning and it's actually happening, which I think generates some excitement and some reality, if you will, for the fact that this is moving ahead," said Jeffrey Nellhaus, director of research, policy and design with the consortium Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC. Joe Willhoft, the executive director of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, told reporters there
will be snags, and that's in part due to the nature of what a field test is — a test run and an opportunity to see what works and doesn't. Already, out of concern there would be technical problems, Smarter Balanced delayed by a week to this week the start of its field tests. "We have a saying in Smarter Balanced that if nothing goes wrong in the field test, then actually we have failed," Willhoft said. While opposition to the standards has been multidimensional, some critics take issue with the tests and how the results will be used because the tests are designed to replace the annual assessments given in states. Also complicating matters are the new teacher evaluation systems rolling out in many states that rely, in part, on student performance on annual exams. Questions have been raised about when or if the Common Core-based assessments should count on these evaluations. Supporters are warning that scores on the new assessments will drop compared with the old tests, but they say they will be a more accurate measurement of student knowledge. The field tests themselves have generated other concerns. Some states' officials
worry about double testing, meaning some students are participating in both the field test and taking a state exam. In response, the Education Department gave California permission to just give the field tests to all students in third- to eighthgrades, meaning they won't be given the state assessment this year. Similar permission was given to other states, including Idaho, Montana, and South Dakota, according to the Education Department. Smarter Balanced and PARCC were created to help states pool resources to develop the tests. But some states have opted to use different ones. Florida, for example, recently signed a contract with the nonprofit American Institutes for Research to develop an assessment for its standards, which are largely based on the Common Core standards. For the states participating in the field tests, how they will be conducted varies. PARCC said more than 1 million students will participate in its field tests, and about 10 percent of the students in 14 states and the District of Columbia will take them. It says its field tests will take no more than three hours for most students.
childr en and pr operty owners step in it. (Imagine that!) Also, the dog owner behind you who does clean up his dog’s mess will most certainly expect that you show the same courtesy. Carry a plastic bag with you. It’s really simple and such bags can be purchased for a buck at dollar stores and other retail outlets. There are other considerations, of course. Keeping your dog in control is critical when you are around other people and other animals, and especially around small childr en. Dogs can be very unpredictable, but so can little kids. From my own animals over the years, I’ve lear ned that they do not like being surprised!
Finally, you need to be aware of the “Woof Bowl.” Just south of the Wool Bowl, there is a fantastic Roswell facility which dog owners should check out. It took several years to develop, but Carroll Hargrove and Elaine Mayfield did a masterful job. With support fr om the Rio Pecos Kennel Club and the Chaves County Veterinary Association, this wonderful dog park was built recently and we as citizens can be proud of it. With an area for large dogs and another for those 25 pounds or less, it is open fr om 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. Your dog can run and run and run! You’ll both be happy.

Pro-Russian forces storm Ukrainian base in Crimea
BELBEK AIR BASE, Crimea (AP) — Ukraine’s armed forces took what may prove to be one of their final stands Saturday in Crimea, as pro-Russian forces stormed and seized control of an air force base amid a barrage of gunfire and explosions. A tense blockade of the Belbek air base base that has endured for more than a week looked set for an inevitable culmination following the seizure of one Ukrainianheld military facility after another in recent days. It was the last major Ukrainian military facility in Crimea to fall into the hands of pro-Russian forces. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry hasn’t provided details of how many bases it still controls on the peninsula. Crimea residents voted last week to secede from Ukraine and join Russia — a process that was formalized this week with the blessing of President Vladimir Putin. The vote, which was held under condition akin to martial law under the gaze of apparently Moscow-led militia forces, has been rejected as illegitimate by the international community. The assault on the Belbek base mirrored events at other Ukrainian-held military facilities on the peninsula in recent days. In footage provided by the Ukrainian Defense ministry, a Russian-made BTR-80 armored personnel carrier could be seen smashing open a front gate at Belbek, a base across the bay from the port city of Sevastopol. APCs crashed through walls at two other locations and were followed by armed personnel, who advanced in crouching position as they secured the area. Four BTR80s were involved in the assault, Ukrainian officials said. Ukrainian troops offered no resistance. Later, a separate motley group arrived at the scene. The crowd appeared to be made up of professional soldiers, members of a recently-formed militia unit and Cossacks. The cause of the explosions wasn’t
immediately clear, although Ukrainian officials said they were stun grenades used to disperse any potential resistance. Two ambulances arrived and then departed shortly after. Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said one reporter and a Ukrainian soldier were injured in the raid. After the takeover, Belbek base commander Col. Yuliy Mamchur called together his men, who sang the Ukrainian national anthem and then stood at ease. He then told his men to put their weapons in the base’s armory. A few hours before, Mamchur attended a wedding between two lieutenants serving at Belbek. Soldiers drank champagne and toasted the couple, despite the looming threat of a raid on the base. Earlier, a crowd stormed the Novofedorivka base, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Crimea’s capital, Simferopol, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said. Ukrainian television station TSN said troops inside the base hurled smoke grenades in an attempt to disperse groups of burly young men attempting to break through the front gates. There were conflicting reports about whether the base was eventually taken over. The Russian Defense Ministry says that as of late Friday, less than 2,000 of 18,000 Ukrainian servicemen in Crimea had “expressed a desire to leave for Ukraine.” The ministry, however, stopped short of saying the remainder of the troops would serve in the Russian army. No similar information has been forthcoming from Ukraine’s authorities, who have been criticized by servicemen marooned in Crimea, some of whom have complained to media that they have been given no clear instructions on what they should be doing. Elsewhere, more than 5,000 pro-Russia residents of a major city in Ukraine’s east demonstrated in favor of holding a referendum similar to the one carried out in Crimea.
LUMPUR, KUALA Malaysia (AP) — Search planes headed back out to a desolate patch of the southern Indian Ocean on Sunday in hopes of finding answers to the fate of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, after China released a satellite image showing a large object floating in the search zone. The object, which appeared to be 22 meters (72 feet) by 13 meters (43 feet), was captured by satellite on Tuesday in a location that falls within the search zone that planes and ships have been crisscrossing since similar images from another satellite emerged earlier in the week. But of ficials have found no trace of it. Australian Maritime Safety Authority spokeswoman Andrea HaywardMaher said she did not know whether the precise coordinates of the location had been searched, but said officials would use the information to refine the search area on Sunday. The maritime authority,
Sunday, March 23, 2014
which is overseeing the search in the region, said a civil aircraft reported seeing a number of small objects in the 36,000square-kilometer (14,000square-mile) area on Saturday, including a wooden pallet, but a New Zealand military plane diverted to the location found only clumps of seaweed. The agency said in a statement that searchers would keep trying to deter mine whether the objects are related to the lost plane. Despite the frustrating lack of answers, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Sunday suggested the sightings were a positive development. “Obviously we have now had a number of very credible leads and there is increasing hope — no more than hope, no more than hope — that we might be on the road to discovering what did happen to this ill-fated aircraft,” Abbott told reporters in Papua New Guinea. Three planes left a base near Perth in western Aus-
tralia early Sunday to make the four-hour journey out to the search region, Hayward-Maher said. A total of eight aircraft will be involved Sunday, along with the HMAS Success, an Australian navy supply ship, she said.
A cold front was forecast to move through the region later Sunday, which could bring clouds and wind, further hampering efforts to locate the plane.
The latest satellite image is another clue in the baffling search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which dropped off air traffic control screens March 8 over the Gulf of Thailand with 239 people on board.
After about a week of confusion, Malaysian authorities said pings sent by the Boeing 777-200 for several hours after it disappeared indicated that the plane ended up in one of two huge arcs: a norther n corridor stretching from Malaysia to Central Asia, or a southern corridor that stretches toward Antarctica.

Texas city pays to end negotiations with Nugent LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) — An East Texas city paid $16,250 to end contract negotiations with controversial rocker Ted Nugent, who was under consideration as the headliner for Longview’s Fourth of July celebration. Longview’s payof f last month came after Nugent’s earlier comments and song lyrics became an issue during a campaign swing with Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott. In January, Nugent called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” The comments resurfaced when Nugent cam-
paigned in February with Abbott, who said he did not endorse such language. City spokesman Shawn Hara told the Longview News-Journal that the consurrounding troversy Nugent was just one factor that led the city to call off negotiations. The amount paid was about half Nugent’s performance fee. “(There were) a variety of reasons. Cost, structure, is it the right musical act for this type of event — a citysponsored, family-oriented overall event,” Hara said. “They decided no, we don’t want to move forward, it is
Rep: Bronchitis sidelines Gregg Allman for shows NEW YORK (AP) — Bronchitis has sidelined Gregg Allman for at least two dates of the Allman Brothers Band’s annual shows at the Beacon Theatre, but his rep says the musician hopes to return to the stage in a few days. Allman was forced to sit out shows Friday and Saturday. Michael Lehman says Allman is under a doctor’s care and is doing better and intends to return for the group’s final four shows over the next week. Lehman says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had been feeling fine up until the illness; the 66-year-old has had health issues in the past, including a 2010 liver transplant.
The band is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. Its annual run at the Beacon started March 7 and wraps up March 29.
not the right act for this. At that point we decided to end discussions.” Mayor Jay Dean said Nugent’s act didn’t fit with the family-oriented program the city wanted. Keith Rothra, outgoing chair man of the Gregg County Republican Party, said he didn’t buy the
city’s explanation that Nugent’s comments were just one of several reasons they broke off talks. “We have paid $16,000 to Ted Nugent for political correctness,” he said. Abbott did not back away from inviting Nugent to campaign, but said he believed Nugent had recog-

nized his language was wrong. His Democratic opponent, Wendy Davis, called his decision to campaign with Nugent “repulsive.” Nugent apologized after Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky disavowed the remark about Obama.
Perry had Nugent perform at his inauguration in 2007. Nugent has also made comments in the past suggesting that immigrants in the country illegally should be treated like “indentured servants” until they earn citizenship.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Dayton coach Archie Miller almost didn’t want to look. Syracuse star freshman point guard Tyler Ennis was open at the top of the key with 2 seconds left and the Flyers holding a two-point lead. When Ennis’ attempt to win the game clanged harmlessly off the rim, Dayton had a victory it had been chasing for thr ee decades. “We have a good program with great tradition,” Miller said Saturday night after Dayton defeated Syracuse 55-53 in the NCAA tournament to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time in 30 years. “Now, we have the ability to build, and
that’s what it’s all about.” Ennis had beaten Pittsburgh last month with a 40-foot shot at the buzzer, so he had the confidence to try again, even though Syracuse had missed all nine attempts fr om behind the ar c against the pesky Flyers. “The last shot was a great shot. It was the right play,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “A chance to win the game. You don’t have enough time to get to the basket. I have no problem with that shot.” Neither did the 35-year -old Miller, though he probably aged just a little bit while the ball was in the air.
“That thing was on line and he went for the win,” Miller said. “The thing that went through my head was the game at Pitt, when I saw that highlight 7,000 times when he banged the 3. I thought he was going to go to the basket. When I saw him raise up, I didn’t feel good about it. But Buffalo’s been good to us these last couple of days on the buzzer shots.” It sure has. Vee Sanford’s basket with 3.8 seconds left was the margin of victory in Dayton’s one-point win over in-state rival Ohio State on Thursday. After that game, the

DEXTER — NMMI baseball coach Charlie Ward often stresses the importance of two-out hitting. His team did plenty of that on Saturday, rolling past Tucumcari 16-4 to take third at the 16th annual Hal Bogle Tournament. “That’s what we tried to improve after the (second) day, the mental toughness,” Ward said after the win. “We finally did some of that, clutch hitting and better baserunning. Our first two days of baserunning was horrible.
“That’s some progress. That’s promise. We took advantage of some of their mistakes. I’m just glad we got the ‘W.’” NMMI (4-1) had full control of the game in the early going, scoring twice in the second, third and fourth innings to build a 6-0 lead. In the second, Ben Morgan scored on a throwing error and Gavin Maloney scored on a fielder’s choice to give the Colts a 2-0 advantage. In the third, Daniel Zaragoza scored on a wild pitch and Hayden

DEXTER — Things were going well for Dexter. Starting pitcher Jacob Sanchez was keeping Texico hitters off balance and, when the Wolverines put the ball in play, Dexter’s defense put them out. Then a bobbled ground ball turned into another error and before the Demons knew it, a 10 lead had transformed into a 41 deficit. Texico never looked back after its four-run third as the Wolverines beat Dexter 11-1 on Saturday in the championship game of the 16th annual Hal Bogle Tournament. After keeping the Wolverines scoreless in the top of the first, Dexter took the lead in the home half of the inning. With two outs, Dominic Lomeli ripped a double into the gap in left and he scored on a throwing error, giving the Demons a 1-0 lead. Texico took control of the game in the fourth. Jesus Maldonado led off the Wolverine third with a grounder to short, but Ramiro Robles couldn’t handle it, allowing Maldonado to reach. Maldonado was forced out at

The Demons appeared to get
out of the inning when Sanchez got Joseph Sena to swing and miss on a third strike, but the ball was dropped and the throw to first was wide.

Navy RB collapses on field during spring practice
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A freshman running back on the Navy football team collapsed during spring practice Saturday morning and was airlifted to a hospital. Will McKamey was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit, according to a Navy official. He was receiving medical care Saturday night. McKamey, a member of the Third Company at the Naval Academy, is a 2013 graduate of Grace Christian Academy in Tennessee. He was an All-State selection and was named Mr. Football for the state of Tennessee as a senior. According to statement released by the school, “The entire Naval Academy family is shaken by this turn of events and we are providing all the support we can to Will and his family.”
Feds want documents in Michigan Title IX probe
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The government is requesting documents from the University of Michigan as it looks into how the school responded to a reported violation of its sexual misconduct policy by a football player. The Blade of Toledo, Ohio, reports Saturday it obtained a notification letter through a Freedom of Information Act request. In it, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights notifies Michigan of allegations of sexual discrimination in its failure to promptly respond to the alleged rape of a female student. The letter requests documentation of complaints of sexual harassment to the university from 2011-12 to the 2013-14 school years. Ex-kicker Brendan Gibbons was expelled in December for violating the school’s sexual misconduct policy. University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald has said Michigan will fully cooperate with the investigation.
Allegations of racehorse abuse being investigated
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Racing Hall of Fame-nominated trainer Steve Asmussen and his top assistant are being investigated by thoroughbred racing regulators in New York and Kentucky after an animal rights group alleged they mistreated horses. The investigations were launched after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals provided video evidence from an undercover investigation of Asmussen and some of his associates, the states’ racing commissions said Thursday. Scott Palmer, the equine medical director of the New York state Office of Veterinary Affairs, who’s assisting in the Gaming Commission investigation, said: “The behavior depicted in the undercover video and supporting materials is disturbing and disgusting.” On its website, PETA said its investigator worked for Asmussen at Churchill Downs and the Saratoga Race Course last summer and documented overuse of painmasking drugs to push horses beyond the point of physical exhaustion. PETA also accused Asmussen and his top assistant, Scott Blasi, of administering drugs to horses for nontherapeutic purposes to boost performance, forcing injured horses to train and race and having one of their jockeys use an electric shocker to make horses run faster. Tulsa, Okla., attorney Clark Brewster, who represents Asmussen and Blasi, told The New York Times the men will reserve comment until they’ve had time to fully review the accusations and would then respond factually. There was no answer Thursday at Asmussen’s office in Arlington, Texas. “The allegations and footage provided by PETA are extremely troubling, and we are fully investigating the matter,” said Robert Williams, acting executive director of the New York Gaming Commission. “PETA has offered to assist the commission in its investigation, and we welcome such cooperation.” Kentucky Horse Racing The Commission issued a statement saying it would “conduct a thorough investigation of these allegations and take appropriate steps once that investigation is concluded.” Asmussen ranks second among trainers in career racing victories, with more than 6,700. He has earned more than $214 million in purses and is among 10 finalists named earlier this month to the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame ballot, results of which will be announced April 25. Asmussen has two Eclipse Awards as the nation’s leading trainer. He trained Curlin to Horse of the Year honors in 2007 and 2008 and Rachel Alexandra to Horse of the Year in 2009. Asmussen served a six-month suspension in 2006 after a filly he trained tested 750 times over the legal limit in Louisiana for a local anesthetic used to deaden pain in a horse’s legs so it will continue to run. He turned the operation over to Blasi during that time. The Times was first to report the PETA investigation.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers’ long losing streak continued and so did their march toward the wrong kind of record. Joakim Noah finished with 20 points, Jimmy Butler scored 17, and the Chicago Bulls handed Philadelphia its 24th straight loss, winning 91-81 Saturday night and sending the 76ers within two of the NBA record. The Sixers moved ahead of the Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) for the second-longest, singleseason losing streak. The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped 26 during the 2010-11 season, and Philadelphia would have to pull off an upset to avoid tying that. The next two games are at San Antonio and Houston. Drop them, and the Sixers could set the record at home against Detroit on March 29, particularly if they continue to shoot like this from the outside. They missed their first 18 3-pointers before Byron Mullens made one early in the fourth and were 1 of 20 in the game. Pelicans 105, Heat 95 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Anthony Davis had 30 points, 11 rebounds and three steals, and New Orleans handed struggling Miami its seventh loss in 11 games. LeBron James twisted his right ankle while stepping on Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans’ foot during a drive to the hoop late in the third quarter, but remained in the game and finished with 25 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. It was not enough for Miami, which gave guard Dwyane Wade and center Greg Oden the night off following Friday’s victory at Memphis. Pelicans guard Eric Gordon also sat out with a sore left knee, but New Orleans got 14 points from Evans, 12 from Al-Farouq Aminu and 11 from Luke Babbitt.
Grizzlies 82, Pacers 71 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Conley scored 21 points, Zach Randolph added 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Memphis held Indiana to its lowest point total of the season. Mike Miller added 13 points as Memphis won for the seventh time in nine games and maintained its hold on the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Marc Gasol, returning after spraining his ankle Friday night, had 10 points and nine rebounds. Lance Stephenson led the Pacers with 15 points and eight rebounds, while David West added 10 points, but was 5 of 15 from the field. Paul George, the Pacers’ leading scorer at 22.1 points per game, was held to eight points, missing eight of his 10 shots, and Indiana shot 37 percent for the game.
Rockets 118, Cavaliers 111 CLEVELAND (AP) — James Harden scored 37 points, including 17 in the third quarter, and Houston led from wire-to-wire in a victory over Cleveland. Harden was 9 of 15 from the field, hit five 3-pointers, made all 14 of his free throws and had 11 assists without playing the fourth quarter after Houston built a 29point lead late in the third. Rockets center Dwight Howard missed his third straight game with a sore left ankle, but Houston is undefeated in the eight-time All-Star’s absence. Cleveland has lost four straight and played again without point guard Kyrie Irving, who has been sidelined for three games with a strained left biceps. Dion Waiters led Cleveland with 26 points. Tyler Zeller added a career-high 23 points for the Cavaliers, who also played without forward Luol Deng (sprained left ankle).
Bobcats 124, Trail Blazers 94 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Al Jefferson scored 28 points and two others finished with more than 20 as Charlotte routed Portland. Kemba Walker added 26 points, Gerald Henderson had 23 and Chris DouglasRoberts 11 for the Bobcats, who finished with their highest-scoring game and mostlopsided victory in snapping a two-game losing streak. Damian Lillard scored 20 points, Dorell Wright added 17 and Wesley Matthews 15 for the Trail Blazers, who trailed by as many as 34 points late in the second half in their worst loss this season. Charlotte shot 52 percent from the field (49 of 94), outscored Portland in the paint 54-32 and held a 50-36 rebounding advantage over the Trail Blazers, who had won their last four games against the Bobcats.

added 25 points, and Los Angeles beat Detroit to extend the Pistons’ losing streak to five games. The Clippers, coming off a 110-100 loss at Denver that ended their 11-game overall winning streak, shot 54 percent from the field and improved to 24-1 when finishing at 50 percent or better. DeAndre Jordan had 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division leaders, who have had at least one player with double-digit rebounds in a franchise-record 46 consecutive games. The previous mark was 44, by the 1977 Buffalo Braves. Jonas Jerebko had 22 points and nine rebounds off the bench for the Pistons.
Spurs 99, Warriors 90 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Tony Parker had 20 points and five assists, Danny Green scored 18 points and short-handed San Antonio outlasted Golden State for its 13th straight victory. Tiago Splitter added 17 points and 14 rebounds as the NBA-leading Spurs (5316) pulled away with an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter. San Antonio, riding its longest winning streak in six years, is two games ahead of Oklahoma City for the top playoff seed in the Western Conference. The Spurs did it even while resting stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. They are 3-0 against Golden State this season, including two wins in Oakland without their regulars, after eliminating the Warriors in the second round of the playoffs last year. Stephen Curry scored 20 points to go with six assists and six rebounds, and Andrew Bogut grabbed 17 boards as the Warriors head into a five-day break on a sour note.
Jazz 89, Magic 88 SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Trey Burke scored 17 points, including a high-arcing 3pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining, to push Utah past Orlando. With the Jazz trailing 88-86, Gordon Hayward dribbled through the center of the Magic defense and found Burke in the corner. The big shot snapped Utah’s six-game losing streak and extended Orlando’s skid to eight games. Down the stretch, the game turned into a battle between Burke and Victor Oladipo, two rookies drafted in the top 10 of last summer’s draft. Oladipo, the second selection, scored 19 points for the Magic. He made a jumper and then added two free throws with 21 seconds to play to give Orlando an 85-82 lead.
Jets sign Vick to challenge Smith for QB job
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Vick is in for the New York Jets. Mark Sanchez is out. And, the stage is set for one hot quarterback competition this summer with Geno Smith. The Jets signed the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback to a oneyear deal Friday, and released Sanchez, the one-time face of the franchise. “Anywhere I go, or any team, I’m always going to compete for the No. 1 spot,” Vick said during a conference call. “And I will encourage any other quarterback behind me or in front of me to always compete for their job, for the No. 1 spot. “That’s how champions are made.” Vick will present a real challenge to Smith, who played well down the stretch of his rookie season, but finished with 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. The Jets, however, never labeled Smith their starter entering the offseason — and last year’s second-round draft pick will have his work cut out during training camp if he intends to be under center in Week 1 this season. “As of right now,” Vick said, “Geno’s the starting quarterback of this football team.” But, Vick also made it clear that he still envisions himself as a starting-caliber player. “I wouldn’t say I would necessarily be OK with sitting on the bench all year,” Vick said. “But, I know what I signed up for and I know what I came to New York to do.” That means competing with Smith, helping the youngster along and getting better himself. “At the end of the day,” Vick said of however things turn out, “I’ll be content with it.” Vick was a free agent after spending the last five seasons with the Eagles. He will be reunited with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who helped the quarterback have the best season of his career in Philadelphia in 2010. Vick was plagued by injuries the last three years and lost the starting job last year to Nick Foles. Vick was still considered the top quarterback available in the offseason freeagent class. Vick said he was sold on the Jets because he enjoyed the idea of reuniting with Mornhinweg and playing for coach Rex Ryan, an opportunity he welcomed. “I love competition and I love football,” Vick said. “And, I feel I have a lot of football left to play.” Vick, who had a solid start in Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense, injured a hamstring in Week 5 last season. He was

Roswell Daily Record replaced by Foles, who led the Eagles to the NFC East title and was selected the Pro Bowl MVP. Despite losing the starting gig, Vick was praised by Kelly and team officials for being a leader in the locker room and maintaining an outstanding relationship with Foles while helping him through his second NFL season. “I really enjoyed getting to know him over the last five years,” Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement in which he thanked Vick. “He always represented our team with a tremendous amount of class.” Vick thanked the Eagles, their fans and the city of Philadelphia in an open letter posted on The Philadelphia Inquirer’s website. “I was honored to be their quarterback and took the privilege to heart every day,” he wrote. The move by the Jets is reminiscent of the headline-making trade they made in 2008, when they acquired an unretired Brett Favre — but as their unquestioned starter. The Vick signing also came two years to the day that the Jets made the surprising move to trade for Tim Tebow. Vick, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who will be 34 in June, was once considered the most dynamic player in the NFL, particularly during his first six NFL seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. His playing career was abruptly halted for two seasons in 2007 when he pleaded guilty to being part of a dog fighting ring. He served 21 months in federal prison, and two more in home confinement. Since his release in 2009, Vick has worked with the Humane Society of the United States to help stop organized animal fighting. The move drew mixed reviews by Jets fans on Twitter and message boards, but that didn’t concern Vick. “I appreciate all the Jets fans who appreciate me and accept me for who I am and what I’ve become, not for what I’ve done,” Vick said. “Right now, my past is irrelevant.” Sanchez’s release came as no surprise, but completes a stunning downfall for the quarterback who once drew comparisons to Joe Namath after helping lead the Jets to consecutive AFC title games in 2009 and 2010. He struggled with consistency after that, and spent last season on injured reserve after tearing the labrum in his right shoulder in a preseason game. Sanchez had three years remaining on his contract, but his $13.1 million salary cap number for next season — and $2 million roster bonus due Tuesday — made it unlikely the team would keep him at that amount. Needing another veteran to push Smith, the Jets set their sights on Vick as soon as free agency began last week. “I came to New York to play football,” Vick said. “That’s what I came to New York to do. I came to New York to play football. As long as I have a uniform on, I’m good.”

Lydia Ko takes lead into Sunday at JTBC Founders Cup
PHOENIX (AP) — There were too many players close behind and too many low scores to be had for Lydia Ko to feel at ease at the top of the JTBC Founders Cup leaderboard. That won’t change the 16-year-old New Zealander’s approach Sunday at Desert Mountain. “I’m just going to play my own game,” Ko said. “If somebody goes crazy low like shooting 10 under, 9 under or whatever, it’s not something I can control.” She shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to reach 16-under 200. Jessica Korda and Mirim Lee were a stroke back, and a dozen players were within four shots on a course that gave up a 63 and two 64s in the third round. “Obviously, there’s going to be some nerves,” Ko said. “Of course, that’s always there.” Ko was 3 under on Wildfire’s Arnold Palmer-designed front nine Saturday after
playing it in even par the first two days. She eagled the par-5 fifth after hitting a 5wood to 7 feet. Ko tapped in for birdie on the par-5 15th after missing an eagle try and took the outright lead with a 10-footer on the par-3 17th. She’s 13 under on the Nick Faldodesigned back nine, where the tournament will be decided. Korda, the winner in the season-opening event in the Bahamas, birdied the final two holes for her second bogey-free 66 in a row. Lee, the leader after each of the first two rounds, bogeyed the 15th and shot 70. Sun Young Yoo, the 2012 Kraft Nabisco winner, was 14 under after a 68. Michelle Wie had a 67 to join Azahara Munoz, So Yeon Ryu, Amy Yang and Chella Choi at 13 under. Creamer had a 64 to match defending champion Stacy Lewis and Morgan Pressel at 12 under.

Roswell picks up two wins Dodgers win MLB opener CARLSBAD — The Roswell softball team breezed to a pair of victories over Hot Springs on the final day of the Carlsbad Invitational, Saturday. The Coyotes won the first game 20-0 in three innings and the second game 17-0 in three innings. In the first game, MyKaela Olivas led a Roswell offense that produced six firstinning runs, nine second-inning runs and five third-inning runs. Olivas was 3 for 3 with four RBIs and two runs scored. Aleena Hernandez went 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run scored and Monica Bencomo was 1 for 1 with three runs and two RBIs. Sheyanne Sandoval and Alexis Acevedo each scored three runs for Roswell. Anissa Munoz picked up the win in the circle, striking out four in two innings of work. In the second game, Roswell (5-5) scored 15 times in the second inning and twice more in the third to get the victory. Olivas was again the star, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Her two RBIs came on a two-run home run in the second. Her twin sister, MyKaya, hit a solo homer in the second and finished 2 for 3 with two runs and an RBI. Priscilla Lucero went 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBIs and Sandoval was 2 for 4 with three runs and an RBI. MyKaya Oliva earned the win, striking out two in two innings in the circle.
Clovis 14, Roswell 2 CLOVIS — The host Wildcats scored five runs in the first inning and scored at least twice in every inning en route to a five-inning victory over Roswell, Saturday. After Clovis went up 5-1 in the first,
Roswell (0-6) scored a run in the second to make it 5-1, but the Wildcats answered with a pair in their half of the second. Clovis scored three in the third and four in the fourth to secure the win. Roswell’s other run came in the third. Brian Espinoza took the loss for the Coyotes, allowing four runs on three hits before being pulled without recording an out. Jeremy Seabrease, Bear Kyser and Espinoza recorded Roswell’s three hits. Niguel Rubio had the team’s lone RBI.
Western Okla. St. 4, NMMI 3, 10 inn. ALTUS, Okla. — Western Oklahoma State scored a run with one out in the bottom of the 10th to beat NMMI, Saturday. NMMI, down 3-0, scored three runs in the eighth to forge a tie. Jake Todd scored on a wild pitch, and Brad Blackwell and Caleb Mitchell scored on a twoRBI single by Austin Grier. In the bottom of the 10th, Kyle Goldfarb retired the first batter, but gave up back-to-back singles two the next two Western hitters. Cody Reynolds gave up an RBI single to the first batter he faced, Esteves Anjelvi, giving Western the win. Goldfarb took the loss for the Broncos (12-19), allowing one run on three hits in 2 1/3 innings. At the plate, Mitchell had two hits, Grier had a hit and two RBIs and Galindo had a hit.
Scott up by three at Bay Hill
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Adam Scott still had the lead at Bay Hill on Saturday. At least five other players suddenly have a realistic chance at winning. Scott, who started the third round with a sevenshot lead, missed three par putts inside 8 feet and had to settle for a 1-under 71, which narrowed his lead to three shots over Keegan Bradley going into the final round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The greens were firmer than ever after three days of sunshine, though the

Maloney scored on a Jake Guerrero RBI single. In the fourth, R yan Dement and Caleb Saiz scored on two Rattler errors. The Rattlers made things interesting, though, drawing to within 6-4 with two runs in both the fourth and fifth innings. Javier Villanueva hit a two-RBI double in the fourth to make it 6-2 and then added a twoRBI single in the fifth to make it 6-4. “They capitalized on our mistakes then they got, I thought, some key hits,” Ward said about Tucumcari’s rally. “I told the boys, ‘We’ve got to play 21 outs.’”
pins were accessible and allowed for good scoring. Several players took advantage. Scott did not. His score was helped by a pair of long birdie putts on the back nine. Bradley’s approach to the 18th narrowly cleared the rocks that frame the lake, leaving him a 4-foot birdie putt for a 6-under 66. He will be paired with Scott in the final round, with much at stake for both of them. A victory for Scott should push him to No. 1 in the world when he arrives at Augusta National to defend NMMI responded with a pair of big innings. The Colts scored three times with two outs in the sixth, then plated seven runs in the seventh to close out the win. In the seventh, Thomas Haley had a two-RBI single, Blade Allen had an RBI single and Teryn Surratt had a two-RBI single. “That is always a positive and a good sign,” Ward said about how his team responded. “It shows these kids, anytime you give runs ... then you answer back, that’s a good sign for a team.” Allen finished with two hits and two RBIs and G. Maloney had two hits and two runs scored. H. Maloney scored three times, while Saiz, Haley and Zaragoza had two runs scored.
his title in the Masters. Bradley hasn’t won anywhere in the world since the Bridgestone Invitational in 2012. Scott was at 15-under 201. Bradley isn’t the only player who now has a chance. Matt Every (66) and Jason Kokrak (67) were four shots behind, both going for their first PGA Tour victory. Chesson Hadley and Francesco Molinari of Italy each had a 69 and were another shot behind.

SYDNEY (AP) — Opening day turned out to be a pretty g’day for the Los Angeles Dodgers and ace Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw flashed his Cy Young form, Scott Van Slyke homered and the NL West champions opened the Major League Baseball season with a 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night at Sydney Cricket Ground. A crowd of about 40,000 watched as MLB played its first regular-season game in Australia. Kershaw, who signed a seven-year, $215 million contract in January, allowed one run and five hits in 6 23 innings. Van Slyke hit a two-run homer and also doubled. The first pitch was delayed because of rain for 14 minutes. By then, the long trip Down Under had taken even longer for some Arizona players. A team bus had a flat tire, and the Diamondbacks said “a handful” of players decided to walk the last half-mile to the stadium instead of waiting for a replacement bus. Kershaw was impressive while making his fourth consecutive opening-day start. He struck out seven, walked one and was pulled by manager Don Mattingly after throwing his 102nd pitch. Quite a turnaround from spring training, when the two-time NL Cy Young winner went 0-3 with a 9.20 ERA in four starts. “Sometimes you just need the adrenaline of a regularseason game, and I just kind of feel relieved to get this one under my belt,” he said. “It’s always good to get results, obviously,” he said. “This one counted.” In his previous openingday starts, Kershaw was 2-0 with 19 strikeouts in 19 scoreless innings. “Kershaw did a good job keeping us in the middle of the diamond,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “He threw a good ballgame against us. We know they’re always going to be close.” Three relievers kept the Diamondbacks scoreless with hitless work. Chris
Perez, a two-time All-Star with Cleveland before joining the Dodgers in the offseason, got the last out in the seventh. Brian Wilson pitched the eighth and closer Kenley Jansen got the save. Jansen walked a batter before getting Gerardo Parra to ground out to end the game. “Clayton was really good, kind of as always ... kind of doing his thing,” Mattingly said. “He’s a tough guy to take out of the game, he always wants to stay in. And I thought our bullpen was really good tonight. Chris comes in and gets a big out for us there and Wilson did a good job and Jansen in closing the door.” There were plenty of Dodgers and Diamondbacks uniforms in the crowd, some worn by American visitors and others by Australians who had flown across the country to watch the opener and Sunday’s second game, when another capacity crowd was expected. They feasted on baseballstyle treats like nachos stuffed in batting helmets and Cracker Jack, which is not usually sold in Australia. If you could afford the cost and the calories, a 2foot-long hot dog sold for $36. Kershaw ran like he’d eaten one of those hot dogs when he tried to stretch a one-out single in the seventh into a double, but was easily thrown out at second by left fielder Mark Trumbo. “My baserunning needs some work,” Kershaw said, laughing. “I almost stopped

coming off his basketball season and we wanted to get him a workout in,” he said. “We made too many errors behind him. He pitched a little more than he had to.” Texico plated three more runs in the fourth, scored twice in the fifth and twice in the sixth for the final margin. Dexter never threatened to score again after
at first base and then went to second, and that hesitation probably killed me. I’m not that fast, so I need all the help I can get. Fortunately, it didn’t hurt us very much.” Van Slyke, playing because of an injury to Matt Kemp and paternity leave to Carl Crawford, nearly cleared the left-field fence in the second inning. His double set up a grounder by Andre Ethier that scored Adrian Gonzalez with the Dodgers’ first run. In his next at-bat in the fourth, Van Slyke connected off losing pitcher Wade Miley for a drive over the rightfield fence — just inside the foul pole — with Gonzalez again on base to put the Dodgers up 3-0. “I thought that it was either going to be a foul or caught,” Van Slyke said. “I didn’t think it had a chance to go out. I felt more relaxed and had a little more energy and focus than I did in the exhibition games.” Sydney Cricket Ground was refurbished two weeks ago to create the baseball diamond and an outfield with an 8-foot wall. It was 328 feet down the foul lines and 400 feet to straightaway center. Miley, who came out for a pinch hitter in the fifth, got the opening day assignment because of a left elbow injury to Diamondbacks ace Patrick Corbin. Miley gave up three runs and three hits, striking out eight with two walks. Both teams finished with five hits.
the second inning. Duran said that his team just needs to spend more time in the batting cage to find its groove. . “We hit the ball good the first couple of innings, but after that, our bats went into a little bit of a slump,” he said. “We just have to get in the cages and work a little harder. Like I said, I have some of the basketball players who came out and are a little behind on their swings and productivity.”

No. 1 Gators run past Pitt into Sweet 16 B4 Sunday, March 23, 2014
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Scottie Wilbekin sat on the bench for the final minute, holding a bag of ice against his left knee. It was about the only time he wasn’t giving Pittsburgh huge problems on both ends of the court. Wilbekin scored 21 points, including 11 of the team’s 13 during a 7-minute stretch in the second half, and top-seeded Florida handled the Panthers 61-45 in the NCAA tournament Saturday. The Gators’ 28th consecutive win put them in the Sweet 16 for the fourth consecutive year. The latest victory followed a lackluster and head-scratching performance in the team’s NCAA opener against Albany two days earlier. The Gators vowed to play with more energy and intensity, and Wilbekin spearheaded the effort. “We just wanted to come out and not let them play harder than us or not play as hard as we can,” Wilbekin said. “I think we did a good job of having our energy up at the start of the game, and we played together on offense and played together on defense.” Wilbekin took over in the second half, scoring eight consecutive points at one point. Patric Young wasn’t too shabby, either, finishing with seven points and eight rebounds. Will Yeguete added eight points — all in the paint. Michael Frazier II chipped in 10 points for the Gators. Frazier was just 2-of-9 shooting from 3-point range. Had Florida not been cold from behind the arc, the game would have been essentially over

The Gators finished 5 of 20 from 3point range, with at least five of those rimming in and out. Florida will face either fourthseeded UCLA or 12th-seeded Stephen F. Austin on Thursday in the South Regional in Memphis, Tenn. The Bruins and Lumberjacks play Sunday in San Diego. The Gators have the longest current streak of Sweet 16
appearances — and expect to go further. If Wilbekin continues to play like he did against the Panthers, Florida surely improves its chances of making another deep run in the tournament. “It was good to see him come back and respond the way he did today,” coach Billy Donovan said. “I thought all the way around he played very well. ... He was great

Louisville returning to Sweet 16

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — It’s not always pretty with Louisville. And sometimes, it’s ugly by design. The defending national champions shrugged off poor shooting, 19 turnovers and a subpar performance by star Russ Smith and still won handily Saturday to get back to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament for the third straight year. “Everything’s not going to be sweet or pretty,” Smith said after a 66-51 victory over Saint Louis. “We’re just getting the job done.” Luke Hancock scored 21 points and the battled-tested Cardinals (31-5) won with defense. Saint Louis (27-7) missed all 15 of their 3-point shots and turned the ball over 18
on both ends of the floor because he really gives it up on the defensive end, and when you give it up like that and you’re the point guard, there’s a physical toll that your body takes over a period of time.” Wilbekin ended up getting iced down after banging knees with a defender. He got a well-deserved standing ovation as he limped off the court.
“He’s a great point guard,” Panthers forward Lamar Patterson said. “He took care of business.” Wilbekin hit a running 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer and drained a back-breaking 3 with 8:24 remaining that gave Florida its largest lead at that point, 4531. His consecutive floaters inside 5 minutes to play were equally troublesome for Pitt. The Panthers, who seemed focused on Young inside and Frazier out, had no answer for Wilbekin’s dribble penetration. Wilbekin also was a force on the press, which helped force 11 turnovers and got the Panthers out of rhythm. Florida played the kind of defense that had to impress NFL coaches Bill Belichick and Mike Tomlin. The Patriots and Steelers head men were on hand, with Belichick sitting behind Florida’s bench in a white Gators visor and Tomlin sitting opposite Pitt’s bench in Panthers colors. Wilbekin really started to dominate as Pitt steadily wore down in the second half. “Got in the lane — constantly,” Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. “He’s a senior, he’s a really good player, he’s been through some ups and downs, obviously, and he’s had a great finish to his career, and that’s what you hope happens to a kid that learns and gets better. They played well. I’m sure they’re proud of him and what he’s become, a local guy that’s done well.” Talib Zanna led the Panthers with 10 points, their only player in double figures.
times in losing in the third round for the third consecutive year. “These guys have had a lot of wins under their belt, a lot of great tournament experiences,” said coach Rick Pitino, who huddled with the Cardinals after watching Florida wear down Pittsburgh in Orlando earlier in the day. “I said, ‘Guys, that’s the exact game you’re going to be in,”’ Pitino said. “‘And you’re going to have to be the prettiest team in an ugly game because that’s the way it’s going to be. ... We grinded out a win, and that’s what the NCAA tournament is all about.” The fourth-seeded Cardinals, who are
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Xavier Thames sent San Diego State home. As in back to the sunshine of California and a spot in the Sweet 16 for the second time in school history Whether he was dropping 3s, finessing floaters in the lane or leading the Aztecs’ suf focating defense, Thames would not let North Dakota State become this year’s version of Florida Gulf Coast. Thames scored 30 points, and fourth-seeded San Diego State ended the run of No. 12 seed North Dakota State 63-44 on Saturday. The Aztecs (31-4) now get to make the short drive up the interstate to Anaheim where they will face either No. 1 seed Arizona or eighth-seeded Gonzaga in the West Regional semifinals on Thursday. Getting to Anaheim became the unspoken goal the second the brackets were released last Sunday. “Like Coach said, it was a two-game tournament and we wanted to get two wins,” Thames said. “That’s what we did.” Thames, who was 9 of 19 from the field, had five assists and ended the comeback hopes of the Bison with a six-point spurt late in the second half that pushed the Aztecs’ lead to 12. He finished one

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Nik Stauskas and Michigan figured out the best way to overcome Texas’ advantage inside. One sweet shooting performance. Stauskas made four of Michigan’s 14 3-pointers, and the Wolverines beat the Longhorns 79-65 on Saturday to advance to the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16 for the second straight year. “Huge win for us,” coach John Beilein said. “These guys believe and they did a great job.” Stauskas had 17 points and matched a career high with eight assists as Michigan (27-8) moved on to next week’s Midwest Regional semifinals in Indianapolis. The second-seeded Wolverines will face the winner of Sunday’s Mercer-Tennessee game. Michigan lost to Louisville in

the national championship game a year ago. But the Wolverines are rolling again, thanks to strong outside shooting and Jordan Morgan’s work inside. “What I do like about this team is they’ve never lost two in a row. They’ve been resilient,” Beilein said. “They get better in both victory and defeat.” Isiah Taylor scored 22 points for the seventh-seeded Longhorns on 8-for-22 shooting. Texas (2411) outrebounded Michigan 4130, including 21 on the offensive glass, but the Longhorns got off to a slow start and never recovered. Michigan shot 14 for 28 from 3point range and 17 for 21 at the free throw line in its ninth win in the last 10 games. Morgan had 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Caris LeVert and Glenn Robinson III had 14 points apiece. “It wasn’t the 14 3s that beat us. It wasn’t,” Texas coach Rick Barnes said. “It was not finishing a couple times defensively and the shots in close that we didn’t get to go down.”

Texas trailed by 18 points early in the second half, but used its defense and rebounding to get back in the game. Martez Walker hit two free throws and Taylor had a jumper to trim Michigan’s lead to 58-52 with 8 minutes left. That’s when Robinson stepped up for the Wolverines, driving inside for a score. After Connor Lammert turned it over for the Longhor ns, Robinson hit a 3pointer to make it 63-52 with 6:43 remaining. “I wanted the ball. I think they were kind of keying in on Nik, and some of our other guys,” Robinson said. “I hadn’t scored in a while.” LeVert added a big 3 in the final minutes, helping Michigan overcome its trouble inside in the second half. The Longhorns outrebounded the Wolverines 25-15 after halftime. “We’ve got to look at this game, and everybody in this room has to remember this feeling. It’s horrible,” Texas guard Demarcus Holland said.
Wisconsin escapes scare from Oregon to advance Roswell Daily Record
MILWAUKEE (AP) — As an ear -splitting roar enveloped the arena, the Wisconsin Badgers pointed to their chests and strutted off the floor as if they had won a prize fight. In a test of basketball tempos, Wisconsin delivered the knockout punch. Ben Brust hit a 3-pointer with 1:07 left and the secBadgers ond-seeded returned to the Sweet 16 after overcoming No. 7 Oregon’s transition game for a thrilling 85-77 win Saturday night in the NCAA tournament. Trailing by 12 at the half, coach Bo R yan’s veteran squad didn’t flinch. “To be able to handle that smack in the face in the first half and come back and deliver one of our own says a lot about this group,” Ryan said. Brust’s clutch 3 from the corner gave the Badgers (28-7) the lead for good in a clash of styles played before a boisterous proWisconsin crowd at the anything-but-neutral Bradley Center. T raevon Jackson followed Brust’s shot with three free throws, but missed one with 21 seconds left to give the Ducks (24-10) one more chance to tie. Oregon gave it to Joseph Young, who had made big shots all night and scored 29 points. But he missed a rushed 3 from the wing, and the Badgers sealed it at the foul line. “That shot he took, no one questioned it,” Oregon’s Richard Amardi said
about Young. “It looked good. Unfortunately it just didn’t go it in when we wanted it.” The red-clad fans erupted in delight. Their beloved Badgers are back in the NCAA regional semifinals for the first time since 2012. They will play Baylor or Creighton in Anaheim, Calif., on Thursday. “Once that momentum swung, we were in trouble,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. Frank Kaminsky led the way with 19 points, Jackson finished with 16 and Brust had 12 — all on 3pointers. Left of f-kilter by the Ducks transition game early and trailing by 12 at the half, the Badgers hustled back in the second half to answer the Oregon charge. After 19 points on the break in the first half, Oregon had nothing in transition after halftime. “Do you know how many fast-break points they got in the second half? Zero.” Ryan said. “Oregon, one of the quickest teams in the country, so you’ve got to give the players a heckuva lot of credit.” The half court sets belonged to Wisconsin. The pace played more their liking. Buckets in the lane by Kaminsky, a jump-shooting 7-footer, and coach Ryan’s gritty guards set the tone inside, and later helped open up the perimeter. “It’s tour nament time and no one wants to go home,” Kaminsky said. “You’re doing whatever you

Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine, right, drives against Harvard’s Brandyn Curry during their game, Saturday.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — For 18 seconds on Saturday, it was happening. Harvard owned basketball, too. The school that churns out U.S. presidents, Supreme Court justices, billionaire CEOs and Nobel Peace Prizes was taking a serious run at altering the discourse on this year’s NCAA tournament, as well.
Harvard guard Laurent Rivard made a 3-pointer from the corner, looped his thumb and finger together around his eye — the “3point goggles” — and flashed a determined glare toward a group of Crimson fans in the stands who

If that means being physical down low with anyone — it’s a battle.” Still, as had often happened during the night, Young had an answer. His 3 from the wing with 2:50 left gave Oregon a 75-74 lead. The Badgers hustled for two offensive rebounds on their next possession. Off a timeout, Ryan re-inserted Brust, who was saddled with four fouls. The senior delivered in a
huge spot. Young couldn’t deliver one last time. “Do whatever it takes to not make it your final game,” Brust said. Jason Calliste had 20 points for Oregon, which set the tone early with inyour -face defense and an aggressive offense. Wisconsin found its groove by attacking the basket, a plan that has worked all year long when the team has been having problems. Dekker added 12 points and eight rebounds
in another typically balanced effort. In the first half, it was Oregon dictating tempo by setting a breakneck pace. The Ducks quieted the Wisconsin fans in a hurry, attacking at nearly every opportunity and flustering Wisconsin. The frustration peaked when the Badgers bench was whistled for a technical foul near the end of the first half after arguing a call. Oregon pounced in the first 20 minutes. Some-
times it was Calliste driving to the bucket to draw fouls. Other times it was Young hitting mid-range jumpers. Then Wisconsin found its way in the second half. Despite the disappointing ending, Oregon had regrouped quite well since a midseason stretch of eight losses in 10 games. “We didn’t get stops and we didn’t rebound,” forward Mike Moser said. “Simple as that.”
UConn pulls off upset of Villanova
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — First Duke, then Syracuse. Now second-seeded Villanova has been eliminated. The Wildcats became the highest seed to fall in the NCAA tournament so far after Shabazz Napier scored 25 points in leading No. 7 seed Connecticut to a 77-65 victory in a thirdround game Saturday night. Napier had 21 points in the second half and helped put the game away by hitting three consecutive 3-pointers to give the Huskies a 54-45 lead with 6:08 remaining. Napier was limited to 8 minutes in the first half by foul trouble, and he avoided a major scare when he briefly left the game after hurting his right shin with 4:01 left. Connecticut (28-8) advanced to the East Regional semifinals in New York City, where they’ll play the winner of Sunday’s game between third-seeded Iowa State and No. 6 seed North Carolina. UConn coach Kevin Ollie improved to 2-0 in his tournament debut, two years since taking over after Jim Calhoun stepped down because of health issues, and a year after the Huskies were barred from postseason play because of academic sanctions. Ryan Arcidiacono scored 18 points for Villanova (29-5) in a matchup of two former Big East rivals. The Wildcats’ loss came on the heels of another upset in Buffalo. The game was played immediately after Dayton, the 11th seed in the South Region, beat third-seeded Syracuse 55-53. UConn advanced to the round of 16 for the 17th time in its 32nd tournament appearance. And the Huskies did it in their first season as members of the American Athletic Conference after the Big East
out season. The third-seeded Orange (286), who finished second in their first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference, struggled all game against the swarming Dayton defense. They missed all 10 attempts from beyond the arc, while the Flyers hit seven times from long range. It was the first time in 665 games that Syracuse failed to make a 3. “It’s hard to digest any loss,” said Ennis, who finished with 19 points on 7-of-21 shooting. “They did a good job defensively, and the looks we did get we didn’t capitalize.” Dyshawn Pierre scored 14 points and Jordan Sibert, held scoreless in the first half, hit a key 3-pointer with 47.7 seconds for Dayton.
Connecticut’s Shabazz Napier, center, puts up a shot between two Villanova defenders during the Huskies’ win, Saturday. was realigned following a series of defections. Lasan Kromah scored 12 points for UConn, while DeAndre Daniels, Ryan Boatright and Terrence Samuel each had 11. Villanova remained a Big East holdover, but wound up being bounced by a familiar foe. Napier, a member of UConn’s 2011 national championship team, continued to lead the Huskies after he scored 24 points in an 89-81 overtime win against Saint Joseph’s in the second round Thursday.
Sibert finished with 10 points and Sanford had eight, but Sibert nearly gave it away when he stepped out of bounds while the Orange pressured him in the corner with 14 seconds left. After Ennis settled for a jumper from the foul line that missed, instead of driving the lane as he had all night, Syracuse fouled Pierre and he made one fr ee thr ow, giving the Orange one more golden opportunity. C.J. Fair had 14 points on 4of-14 shooting and 10 rebounds in his final game for the Orange. Jerami Grant had just four points and attempted only three shots before fouling out late. T revor Cooney, who broke out of a long slump with four 3pointers in the second round
against Western Michigan, had two points and missed all four shots he took from behind the arc. Dayton, which improved to 11-0 when holding opponents under 60 points, led by as many as seven in the first half and extended its two-point halftime lead to six on the transition strikes the Flyers thrive on. Ennis had a pair of courtlong dashes and layups to pull the Orange to 47-46 with 2:42 left. The Flyers extended the lead on Scoochie Smith’s breakaway layup after a Syracuse turnover, and Sibert’s 3 at the shot-clock buzzer gave the Flyers a 52-46 lead with 47.7 seconds to play. Ennis came back with a
The teams traded leads four times in the opening 5:25 of the second half, with Daniels putting UConn ahead for good, 37-36, with a layup. Connecticut eventually took control in a span of 1:32, during which it hit three consecutive 3-pointers to build a 51-40 lead. Kromah began the surge and Napier capped it with a pair of 3s — and struck a pose for the cameras after hitting the second one with 8:59 left. James Bell scored 14 points and Darrun Hilliard added 13 for Villanova. three-point play just 7 seconds later and then hit two fr ee throws to make it a one-point game with 24.8 seconds left. Three of Syracuse’s last four losses were by five points or fewer, a tough pill to swallow after starting the year with 25 straight wins and being ranked No. 1 for three weeks. Syracuse was 8-5 in games decided by five points or fewer but lost six of its final nine games. “When you make shots, you win. When you don’t make shots, you lose in close games,” Boeheim said. “Early in the year, we made shots.” Syracuse slogged through its worst first half of the year, hounded by Dayton’s intense man-to-man defense. The Flyers went into the locker room leading 20-18.

Jack Fleck dies at 92
FOR T SMITH, Ark. (AP) — Jack Fleck, who produced one of golf’s greatest upsets by beating Ben Hogan in a playoff to win the 1955 U.S. Open, died Friday. He was 92. He had been the oldest living U.S. Open champion. The Edwar ds Funeral Home said Fleck died after a brief illness. Jim Edwar ds, the general manager, said he saw Fleck hitting golf balls as recently as six weeks ago. Fleck retur ned to The Olympic Club two years ago when the U.S. Open celebrated its champions at the San Francisco course. “I was fortunate to do the playing at that time and I’ve read a lot about it, that I out-Hoganed

were coming unhinged with 7:12 left in the game. Someone in the Harvard nation tweeted: “rooting for the 1 percent.” The Ivy Leaguers had overcome a 16-point deficit to take a twopoint lead over Michigan State, a team that always comes up big on college basketball’s biggest stage. The next time down the floor, Spartans guard Travis Trice came back with a 3 to put his team back in the lead. A few minutes later, Michigan State was out of danger — not by much, though — on the way to an 8073 victory that sent Harvard back home, but not without making a statement. “We showed everybody that we can come all year and play with the best,” sophomore guard Siyani Chambers said. Led by a career -high 26 points from Branden Dawson, the fourthseeded Spartans (28-8) moved onto the Sweet 16 for the 12th time in the last 17 seasons. They’ll play Virginia or Memphis next Friday at Madison Square Garden. A lot of fans thought Harvard could win its first game against Cincinnati. But even President Obama had picked Michigan State to eliminate his law school on the way to the national title. Yet even in a loss, Harvard hoops proved it is here to stay. “I thought our kids competed,” coach Tommy Amaker said. “We knew we would.” The program Amaker took over seven years ago was in its third straight NCAA tournament and two nights removed from only the second March Madness win in school history. Last year, the encore was a disheartening 23-point loss to Arizona. This time, it was something much different against an opponent that may have been even better. “That’s one thing Coach Amaker talks about, that we’re not just built for the Ivy League, we’re built to go past that,” junior forward Jonah T ravis said. “That’s one of our main goals, to match up with teams like that and beat teams like that.” Over a comeback that lasted 7 minutes, 31 seconds, 12th-seeded Harvard (28-5) pounded on Michigan State, plain and simple. The rally started with a pair of 3-pointers by Brandyn Curry and continued relentlessly. The Crimson grabbed almost every loose ball, kept hands in Michigan State’s flustered faces.
Hogan,” Fleck said in June 2012. “There was no time at all that I felt scared or under pr essur e coming down to the wire.” Hogan appeared to be on his way to a record fifth U.S. Open title in 1955, closing with a 70 to finish at 7-over 287. He already was being congratulated by players who figured no one could catch him. But Fleck, an Iowa club pro in his first year on the PGA T our, made two bir dies over the final four holes for a 67 to force a playoff. Fleck shot 69 in the playoff to beat Hogan by three shots. “It was like someone who had never won a tour tournament beating Tiger Woods today,” Fleck said in a 2002 interview with The Associated Press.
Steve Moundou-Missi, the 6-foot-7 forward who was supposed to contain Michigan State’s 6-10 power player, Adreian Payne, simply outplayed him. When Moundou-Missi tipped in a missed shot with 10:22 left, Harvard trailed only 55-53. At that point, both the chant ringing from the Harvard stands — “I believe that we will win” — and the sign one of the fans was holding — “We always bring our A+ Game” — was more than just good PR. Michigan State called a timeout but Tom Izzo’s play produced an offensive foul. Moundou-Missi missed a layup, but Wesley Saunders, who led the Crimson with 22 points, scrambled for a loose ball and dunked to tie it. About 90 seconds later, Rivard hit his 3 to put Harvard ahead 6260. “You look down the other end, and I’ve got a good friend that’s down there,” said Izzo, who goes back more than 20 years with Amaker. “I kept saying, ‘They’re going to come back. You better realize that.”’ They did. Yet somehow, once the Spartans lost the lead, they started playing better. Harvard’s lead lasted just 18 seconds. After T rice put the Spartans in the lead, Rivard missed a 25-footer — part of a 2-for -5, seven-point night in which he was shut down by Gary Harris. Payne came back with two free throws and Harris made a 3 of his own, part of an 18-point, five-assist night that complemented his great defense. “It was a scare and we need to give credit to Harvard,” Michigan State guard Denzel Valentine said. Payne followed his career -high, 41-point night in the opener against Delaware with a modest 12 points, but the final lesson in this one was all the ways Michigan State can beat you. Dawson had matched his previous career best of 20 by halftime. When he took a pass from T rice for a layup with 1:54 left, he gave the Spartans a 73-67 lead. Harvard pulled within four and Moundou-Missi blocked Keith Appling’s shot on the other end. But the Spartans won a scramble for the ball and Amaker stomped his foot and shouted “Dammit.” The game was pretty much over by then and both teams had proven a point: Harvard can play with anyone and Michigan State can handle a legit challenge. “A wonderful effort by our team,” Amaker said. “But you have to play perfect basketball to pull a game out like that.”

we did in the regular season, to earn that four seed and now have the opportunity to play where we don’t have to worry about airplanes,” San Diego State coach Steve Fisher said. Kory Brown led the Bison (26-7) with 13 points, but it was the struggles of leading scorer Taylor Braun that had North Dakota State trying to play catch up. Braun missed nine straight shots during one stretch. Sometimes he was guarded by Thames. Other times it was J.J. O’Brien taking a turn on the Summit League player of the year. The red, teary-eyed Bison weren’t ready to see this run come to an end. “It’s only the greatest professional week of my life,” Bison coach Saul Phillips said. “I got to watch a group of guys that deserved it, who wanted it so bad and made it a priority in their life and did everything I asked them to do.”

Dwayne Evans led Saint Louis, which has never been to the Sweet 16, with 16 points. Atlantic 10 player of the year Jordair Jett finished with 15. Chris Jones made a couple of huge shots and scored 11 points for Louisville. Montrezl Harrell put a punctuation mark on the victory with a dunk that gave him 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Roswell Daily Record Fisher knew the challenge of trying to fluster an offense that worked with precision all season. The prep by Fisher and his staff went beyond just watching film. Fisher reached out to contemporaries that knew about the Bison, even current Nebraska coach and former North Dakota State coach Tim Miles. Miles was loyal to the Bison and didn’t cough up any secrets, but the defensive plan for the Aztecs to use their length worked. Braun finished 2-of-14 shooting and just seven points. North Dakota State shot 50.9 percent for the season to lead the country, but could only make 31.9 percent against the Aztecs. Braun finished the first half 1-of-10 shooting and equally quiet was Lawrence Alexander.

mark in the round of 16. The Cardinals are in the regional semifinals for the 20th time, matching Kansas and trailing only North Carolina (25), Kentucky (24) and Duke (23). Smith struggled shooting the ball for the second straight game, missing his first four attempts and going scoreless until his 3-pointer put the Cardinals up 25-14 in the final minute of the opening half. Saint Louis starts five seniors, and their experience and cohesion showed in weathering a slow start and methodically working its way back into the game after falling down by 11. The Billikens began the second half with a 13-2 run, holding Louisville without a field goal for nearly 7 minutes to take a 29-27 lead. But Smith hit a floater in the lane, then made two free throws to restore order for the Cardinals, who limited Saint Louis to 39.6 percent shooting. Louisville rebuilt their lead to 13

over the next 9 minutes, with Hancock making two 3-pointers and Smith finishing a 23-8 surge with a driving layup that put his team up 50-37. Smith finished 3 of 10 from the field and had a team-high seven turnovers. The senior led the Cardinals with seven assists. “Russ Smith has grown so much as a basketball player, but he still has one thing left, and I tried to explain this to him at halftime,” Pitino said, adding that Smith has to learn to recognize how other coaches are game-planning to slow him down. “All the great ones from Michael Jordan to Kobe, they don’t try to score 20 points in the first quarter. They get everybody else the ball and they let the game come to me, the other team fatigues and things open up. So his last lesson is to play like he did in the second half. .. . He’s our Michael, our Kobe.”

Elissa Pacheco, age 86, passed away in her home in Las Cruces, New Mexico on March 20, 2014 surrounded by her family. Elissa was born on July 16, 1927 to Herman and Mercedes Miranda (nee Ortiz) in Roswell, New Mexico. She and her brother Herman spent their entire childhood in Roswell, where they attended elementary through high school. For economic reasons, Elissa had to withdraw from regular school so that she could attend beauty college, and she obtained her cosmetologist’s license when she was just 16. However, even at that young age, she was determined to finish her education, so after working in her mother’s beauty shop all day, she attended night school and graduated from Roswell High on time with her class. This determined spirit would define the rest of her life, as she always gave her best to whatever she did. In 1946 she began dating Paul Pacheco, a life-long neighbor, when he returned home from his service in World War II. They married in 1949 and moved to Paul’s sheep ranch in Arabela, New Mexico. Elissa embraced her rural life and became a dedicated mother and homemaker. They had five children: Arturo, Celani, Cristina, Cecelia, and Carlos. While Paul mended many fences and herded hundreds of sheep, Elissa created their loving home. She was a fabulous seamstress, always planted a beautiful flower garden, canned fruits and vegetables, and baked fresh breads and pastries daily. She and Paul loved entertaining, and many visitors came from far away to visit them on the weekends where they would be treated to hours of animated conversation and delicious meals of traditional New Mexican fare: lamb roasts, pinto beans, chile, and sopaipillas or fresh tortillas. Elissa always took on vital roles in her community. A devout Catholic, she was an active member of the Altar and Rosary Society of the Hondo Catholic Church, and she developed a deep and lasting connection with the Poor Clare Monastery Nuns in Roswell. She was also a member of the Garden Club and the Extension Club. She is perhaps most remembered in the Hondo
Valley for her twenty years as a 4-H Club leader. In this way, she not only helped her own children discover and develop their unique potentials, she also helped many of the community’s children learn to bake, sew, raise livestock, and develop public speaking and leadership skills. After 35 years of married life on the ranch, Paul and Elissa retired to a community in Peoria, Arizona. Away from the responsibilities of the ranch, Elissa delighted in dance classes, a large circle of friends and a personal reinvention. A testament to her boundless energy and verve for life, at age 63 she earned her broker’s license and became one of the top selling real estate agents in her community. Although she loved her newfound personal freedom and career, she still took the time to tutor Mexican residents in English and teach baking and sewing classes to underprivileged children at the Dysart Center in Phoenix. Elissa and Paul had an active and joyful retirement in Peoria, made many lasting friends, and in 2000, after 15 years, they moved back to Las Cruces, New Mexico to be closer to their family. Elissa is survived by her dear brother Her man Miranda, his wife Lola, and their children Phil and Tracy. Her cherished children: son, Arturo Pacheco and his wife Janet, her daughter Celani Dominguez and her husband Domingo, her daughter Cristina Rivera and her husband Frank, her daughter Cecelia Pacheco and her husband Mark Woody, and her youngest son Carlos. She has 14 grandchildren: Arturo Pacheco’s four sons: Arturo Pacheco and his wife Wren, Miguel Pacheco, Marcelino Pacheco and his wife Vanessa, and Jared Wellman and his wife Julie; Celani’s four children: Maria Souktouri and her husband Abderrahim, Juan Domingo Dominguez, Sayil Meza and her husband Ben, and Cristian Dominguez; Cristina’s children: Danieli Parker and her husband Chris, and son Francisco Rivera and his wife, Morgan; Cecelia’s children: Dhaveed Woody, Brahm Woody, and daughter, Mauro Woody; Carlos’s son: Dustin Pacheco and his wife, Misty. She is also survived by 13 great grandchildren: Keenan Dominguez, Mathew Pacheco, Jason Pacheco, Katie and Summer Pacheco, Dominick Pacheco, Leah Pacheco, Talib Souktouri, Belen Meza, Paloma Meza, Jacob Parker, Audrey Parker, and Declyn Wellman. A rosary will be held Monday, March 24, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the Getz Funeral Home, 1410 East Bowman Avenue, Las Cruces, New Mexico The funeral mass will be held Tuesday, March 25, at 10 a.m., at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 1240 South Espina, Las Cruces, New Mexico.

NJ says tourism up in ’13 despite Sandy woes
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Tourism promoters, business owners and even members of the Christie administration have been saying for months that tourism was down last year as a result of Superstorm Sandy. But 2013 was actually a banner year for New Jersey, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno said Thursday at the state’s annual tourism conference in Atlantic City. She said tourism accounted for $40.4 billion in economic activity last year, topping the previous record of nearly $40 billion set in 2012. Her claim contradicts statements made last month by Michele Brown, the state economic development chief, at hearings on Sandy relief aid. Brown said 2013’s tourism numbers were slightly below the 2012 figure. “I read it like five times and I asked the people, ‘Are you sure about these numbers?”’ Guadagno said at the conference in the Golden Nugget Atlantic City. “That’s the first summer after Sandy.” Virginia Pellerin, a spokeswoman for the Economic Development Authority, said the report Guadagno cited Thursday contains new data that was not available earlier in the year. She also said the tourism data Brown referenced included only the four shore counties, not the entire state. The overall tourism statistics came from a report compiled for the state by Tourism Economics, a subsidiary of the U.K.-based Oxford Economics firm. It said visitor spending increased by 1.3 percent in 2013, and total visitation to New Jersey increased by nearly 6 percent to 87.2 million. Guadagno also said construction of and investment in tourism facilities was up 24 percent last year — not surprising given the amount of damage that needed to be repaired after Sandy and from a devastating boardwalk fire in Seaside Heights and Seaside Park. An informal Associated Press survey of beachfront business owners in Monmouth
and Ocean counties just before Labor Day found many reporting sales had fallen by 30 percent in the summer of 2013. Gov. Chris Christie spent the first week in August at the shore with his family, sitting on the beach, playing miniature golf, strolling boardwalks and dining out every night. “We knew that this summer was not going to be like the summer of 2012; I said that right from the beginning,” he said shortly before Labor Day. “There’s no doubt that business was going to be down all over the Jersey shore because a lot of people, having seen the extraordinary devastation, didn’t believe we’d be able to be up and running in time for summer. They turned out to be wrong, and I think we’ll get them back next year.” Tourism promoters also told a legislative hearing in December that the state’s “Stronger than the Storm” campaign came too late to save the first post-Sandy summer. The report also asserted that tourism: • Is New Jersey’s 5th largest industry. • Generated $35.9 billion of New Jersey’s gross domestic product in 2013, or 7 percent of the entire state economy. If New Jersey tourism were a company, its sales would rank No. 70 on the Fortune 500 list — bigger than Sears, DuPont and Hess. • Directly or indirectly supports 511,000 jobs in New Jersey, about 1 out of every 10 jobs in the state. • Generated $4.6 billion in state and local taxes, and $5.2 billion in federal taxes last year. The state plans to launch its new summer tourism campaign, “Going Strong,” later this month. It hopes to use $5 million in federal Sandy recovery funds to pay for it. The report also predicted that visitation to New Jersey will increase by 2 percent or more a year in each of the next four years, and that tourism spending will increase by more than 4 percent annually over that same period.
‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ eyes North America return
NEW YORK (AP) — The dinosaurs are ready to roar across America again — but they’re sporting a new look. “Walking with Dinosaurs, the Arena Spectacular” is coming back to the U.S. and Canada — its first visit to North America since its inaugural 2007 tour — and many of its lifelike puppets will be wearing downy feathers. “We’ve decided to bring them up to date,” said the show’s self-described “resident dino geek” Philip Millar. “I’ve been going on about feathers for some years now. And now we’ve finally taken the leap and we’re applying the feathers to the dinosaurs we’re fairly confident had feathers.” Recent discoveries by paleontologist point to the possibility that a large number of non-avian dinosaurs had feathers or something similar — paleontologists call it “dinofuzz” — as part of their body covering, blurring the distinction between dinosaurlike birds and birdlike dinosaurs. The show, based on an award-winning BBC Television series, travels 200 million years from Triassic to the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, features 20 life-size dinosaurs from 10 species, including a mother Tyrannosaurus Rex and her baby, both of which will now have feathers. Miller said the new feathered creatures may be a shock to some in the audience. He notes that the ferocious T-rex is more closely related in time and anatomy to a sparrow than a Stegosaurs. “People’s popular ideas tend not to keep up with the science, so you’ll find some people tend to draw T -Rexes at a 45-degree angle or they talk about Brontosaurs in a swamp and things like that. The science has moved on.” The new tour kicks off in Cleveland at Quicken Loans Arena from July 913, then hits The Barclay’s Center in New York City
from July 16-20 and then The Prudential Center in New Jersey from July 2327. Other stops are planned for Los Angeles, Kansas City, Montreal, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Milwaukee, Wis. The largest dinosaur in the show is the 36-foot tall, 56-foot long Brachiosaurus. It takes three people to operate the biggest puppets and each large one weighs 1.6 tons, the weight of a standard family car. A team of 50 costume designers and engineers have been working since last year to re-create the ancient creatures, The animatronic dinosaurs bat their reptilian eyelids and gnash their teeth with a startling ferocity. The show is produced by Global Creatures, the Australian company behind the new musical “King
Kong,” ‘’War Horse” and “How To Train Your Dragon.” Worldwide, more than 8 million people have seen the dinosaur show in 243 cities. Miller is a little tickled that the show will land in America in 2014, where debate continues to rage over both evolution and climate change. “Dinosaurs are deeply charismatic. They are very deeply appealing to children. And so I think it’s important that the curriculum around that is fact-based and the way evolution works and the way the history of the planet works” he said. “I mean, climate change killed the dinosaurs. It wasn’t just a meteor. The meteor precipitated making climate change which led to the extinction. So there’s some fairly important lessons from these creatures.”

RISD students, parents and teachers will gather Saturday to ‘Celebrate the Arts’ RANDAL SEYLER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Parents, teachers and kids will come together Saturday to Celebrate the Arts in Roswell. The annual event is part art show, part art happening, and all fun. Doors open at 10 a.m. at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center and the day will be chock full of artwork from art students in grades K-5 in the Roswell Independent School District. “This is our biggest event of the year,” said Gretchen Phillips, arts integration facilitator with the Roswell Independent School District’s Creative Learning Center. In the spring, the annual Celebrate the Arts Day event shows student work from one performing arts and one visual arts lesson, concentrating on each of the Artists’ Habits. Members of the community are invited to try out these lessons for themselves in hands-on activities for studio and stage. The Arts Connect Showcase exhibits outstanding student artworks from each grade-level. Items with student artwork and the program logo are available for purchase by supporters of arts education. “All booths will be open until 3 p.m. for visitors to create their own artwork at each different grade level’s booth,” Phillips said. “This is an opportunity for children of all ages to come to the dance floor and experience performing art, and for parents to see what teachers are doing with the children in teaching the arts in Roswell.” The program begins with a presentation of the VIP student artist, whose artwork was featured on the event poster, and a fifthgrade recorder concert follows. The student art showcase exhibit is a 57-foot-
long exhibition of artwork from each grade level K-5. The art was selected by teachers for its excellence and is being displayed for the general public. The student artists have been notified by letter that their work will be on display, and each of them will receive a ribbon when their artwork is returned to them at their schools. From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., each grade level will display a lesson from one of the Artist’s Habits of Hand, Heart, and Mind: observe, imagine, explore, choose, engage, express, create, reflect. A banner above the display will explain the connection between the visual and the performing sides of the lesson. For example, first grade’s express booth will explain that the visual arts students expressed themselves while drawing and painting in the style of Senufo Tribal Mud Cloth, and in performing arts students expressed themselves while they learned traditional African dances and sang an African "Welcome" song. Artwork from students in that grade at all 12 schools will be displayed. Visitors can try their hands at the same activity the students did in the lesson. At the top of every hour throughout the day, a performing arts teacher from one grade level will invite visitors to come to the wooden dance floor and take part in the same performing arts lesson the students did in their class. The activity for the first-grade booth will be at 2 p.m. “We know this ‘hands-on’ element in our arts celebration is very important because only by actually making art, can parents, family members, and friends experience the challenges to hands, heart, and mind that creating something presents,” said Phillips. The Arts Connect program launched in the
Roswell Independent School District in fall 2004 with only three teachers and two support staff working through the Creative Learning Center, Phillips said. The staff members worked to provide K-5 students with eight lessons that school year. In addition, the Arts Connect program provides Raku-to-Go to all 6thgraders — a three-part experience in forming, glazing, and firing clay to produce totems poles to display at their schools. The Arts Connect program, now in its 10th year, has since grown to include 10 teachers and three support staff providing lessons and projects to K-6 district students. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade receive one lesson each week for 32 of the 36 weeks in the school year. The art teachers, whose home base is housed at the Creative Learning Center, travel to all elementary schools each week to bring their visual and performing arts lessons to all K-5 students. Special arts experiences are planned during the school year for 6thgraders. The lessons are designed to not only meet the NM Arts Standards and Benchmarks, but to integrate Arts Concepts into the other core curriculum, said Cindy Simmons, director of the Cre-
ative Learning Center. As director of the CLC, Simmons oversees the teachers who spend their days traveling between the district’s 12 elementary and middle schools, bringing art education to Roswell’s children. “We want our children to experience creativity, “ Simmons says, “and we want them to have an authentic artistic experience.” To that end, the Creative Learning Center is part teaching lab, part art supply warehouse, and totally unique. The mission of the Elementary Arts Integration Program, “Arts Connect,” is to enhance learning for students from kindergarten to the 6th grade and their teachers through opportunities for creative growth in dance, music, theater, and visual arts. Ten certified teachers endorsed in performing arts and visual arts provide weekly 45-minute lessons to all the elementary school children as well as sixthgrade students, Simmons said. The CLC also provides numerous annual events such as Celebrate the Arts Day to showcase the art and talent of their students. The program has a special mantra for students. “There are no mistakes and everyone is an artist,” says Phillips. Arts Connect is a
statewide program implemented with the passage of the New Mexico Fine Arts Education Act, introduced by New Mexico State Representative Max Coll. In the local district, elementary students were not required to receive any arts education before the bill’s passage. Phillips and Simmons say that while law makes arts education available for all New Mexico elementary students, Roswell public schools are unique in the frequency and regularity with which students receive such instruction. The district receives roughly $1 million each year to provide instruction to at least 5,000 students. The money comes from the state, but Phillips and Simmons say credit for the quality of Roswell’s program goes to the district. “Really, our superintendent and our school board are very much arts advocates,” said Phillips. Elementary students see performing arts and visual arts instructors in alternating weeks. One week, a class might create a puppet show. The next, they might construct masks. Simmons says one goal is for Arts Connect crafts to bleed into the teaching of core subjects. “What we ultimately want teachers to do is teach through the arts,” she said.
She gave as examples an English teacher having students use puppets to make skits about “main ideas,” or a science teacher having students use puppets to make a skit about science topics. The arts are a valuable and essential component of education. They develop the multiple capabilities necessary to effectively contribute to and thrive in our ever changing society. They enhance students’ academic success, Phillips said. They also bring the joy and intrinsic satisfaction that happens when students engage in the creative process. The RISD elementary arts integration program strives to ensure that creative opportunities are based on NM Arts State Standards and Benchmarks, core curriculum for grade-level, and excellence and equity for all students. “We appreciate having our district’s superintendent’s support for arts education in the elementary schools so very much,” said Phillips. “We want the community know that we are eager to have everyone from two to 92 come out next Saturday to share the joy of creativity at this wonderful annual event.” Anyone with questions or wanting more information may call the Creative Learning Center at 637-3301.
Ex’s Facebook request could harm marriage Roswell Daily Record
Q: Should I accept a “friend” request on Facebook from an old boyfriend? I’m in love with my husband and committed to him, so I feel sure that this won’t pose a threat to our marriage. What do you think? Jim: I’d suggest the first thing you should do is ask your husband what he thinks. It’s important to be open and honest, and keeping secrets only undermines trust. If your marriage is strong and healthy, then it’s worth protecting. You need to be careful about exposing your relationship to threats of any kind, no matter how remote they may seem. Since your former boyfriend initiated the contact, it would probably be a good idea to ask yourself some questions about his motives. If you have any
Sunday, March 23, 2014
If you’re still feeling inclined to reconnect with this guy, you may need to consider your motives. Are you feeling compelled to revisit the past because of present discontentment? Have you been thinking about the way things “might have been” had this rela-
tionship turned out differently? This may not be the case, but it deserves some thought. Ultimately, it’s a decision that you must make together with your husband. If you choose to go ahead and accept your old flame’s invitation to reconnect, I’d urge you to do so via a Facebook account that intentionally reflects the healthy nature of your marriage. Among other things, your page should be filled with images designed to remind visitors of your relationship with your husband. Photos should frequently show the two of you together as much as possible. The whole point is to represent the two of you as a unit. This will discourage your old boyfriend from making any unwarranted assumptions.
Q: My mom and my aunt had a huge argument several years ago and haven’t spoken since. I’m married and I want my family to have a relationship with my aunt and cousins, but Mom says she’ll disown me if I do. This is tearing me up. What can I do? Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries: Unfortunately, I’ve seen families needlessly splintered because of situations like yours. Like others I’ve observed, your mom severs relationships when she feels hurt, upset or angry. I can’t offer you any guarantees how your mom will respond, but let me suggest the best approach you can take if you want to retain your own identity and build healthy relationships. As an adult, you need to
establish appropriate boundaries with your mom — you are separate from her. This is especially true in a situation like yours where your mom is inclined to test or cross them. Let her know that you love her and value your relationship, but that her ongoing disagreement is between her and her sister — not you — and that you will be pursuing a relationship with your aunt and cousins. She may object, and even accuse you of betraying her, but it’s critical you stand your ground. Once you’ve initiated things with your extended family, keep the focus of your relationship on you and them — not your mother. There may be the temptation for you to be made the mediator, or for you to

Modern home divides historic Southern neighborhood RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Architect Louis Cherry sees the two-story structure — with its exposed beams, masonry piers, deep overhangs and shallow-pitched roof — as a “contemporary interpretation” of the Craftsmanstyle homes that dot the city's Historic Oakwood District. But to some of Cherry's neighbors, the cypresssided house at 516 Euclid Street is just Frank Lloyd Wrong. And nearly six months into construction, with the home roughly 85 percent finished, Cherry and wife Marsha Gordon face the real possibility that they might have to tear down their dream house. “It was very much our intention to design and build a house that people would really like and accept,” Cherry said on a recent overcast morning as he and Gordon stood in the shell of what they hope
will be their master bedroom. “It was very surprising to us that there's been this reaction, as if this is some crazy, modernist intervention.” Decisions by historic zoning districts are appealed all the time. But John Hildreth, a vice president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, says this is one case with a bit of a twist. “In the way it's gone forward, and with construction being as far along as it is, to have that kind of action taken, it's pretty unusual,” says Hildreth, based in Charleston, S.C. The fight between neighbors began last September, when the Raleigh Historic Development Commission issued a certificate of appropriateness, or COA, for the couple's 2,100square-foot house. A few days later, Gail Wiesner, who lives in the sherbetgreen bungalow across the
street, filed a notice of intent to appeal. But Cherry and Gordon proceeded with construction, saying the city advised them the appeal was merely “procedural.” Wiesner, a real estate agent, argued that the commission's COA panel violated several procedures. She called the design “garishly inappropriate” and said Cherry and Gordon “failed to meet their burden of producing competent, material, and substantial testimony and evidence to show that their proposed project preserves the special character of the Oakwood Historic District.” “The structure as proposed is incongruous to the Oakwood Historic District,” wrote Wiesner, whose own home was built in 2008. “It will harm the character of the neighborhood and contribute to erosion of the neighborhood's value as an asset to

its residents, to the surrounding communities, to the businesses it supports, to in-town and out-of-town visitors, and to the City as a whole.” Carved out of the dense woods known as Mordecai
Grove following the Civil War, Oakwood is an eclectic mix of 19th and early 20th century architectural styles — from ornate Italianate mansions and mansard-roofed Victorians, to quaint bungalows and
brightly-painted shotgun houses. The historic district was created in the 1970s, when residents banded together to stop a proposed highway that would have cut through the neighborhood's heart.

People of Myanmar’s ‘Lost World’ brace for tourists, development MERGUI ARCHIPELAGO, Myanmar (AP) — Where the Indian Ocean rolls toward Myanmar’s southwester n coast, a lacework of 800 islands rises, fringed with shimmering beaches of no footprints. Here hornbills break a primeval silence as they flutter through soaring jungle canopy. Pythons slumber on the gnarled roots of eerie mangrove forests. Only rarely will you spot the people who live here: the Moken, shy, peaceful nomads of the sea. The Mergui archipelago has been called the “Lost World,” but outsiders have found it — first fishermen, poachers and loggers, and now developers and highend tourists. The people losing this world are the Moken, who have lived off the land and the sea for centuries. The islands are thought to harbor some of the world’s most important marine biodiversity, and are a lodestone for those eager to experience one of Asia’s last tourism frontiers before, as many fear,
it succumbs to the ravages that have befallen many once-pristine seascapes. As the world closes in, the long-exploited Moken are rapidly diminishing in numbers and losing the occupations that sustained them for generations. Though they are known as “sea gypsies,” very few still live the nomadic life, and only some aging men can fashion the “kabang,” houseboats on which the Moken once spent much of every year. Their island settlements are awash with trash and empty liquor bottles, signs of the alcoholism that has consumed many Moken lives. They eventually may share the same fate as some of their cousins in neighboring Thailand who have become exotic photo opportunities near highly developed tourist areas. “Before it was easy to earn money, to find products of the sea. You could easily fill a bucket with fish. But now many Burmese are pursuing the same livelihoods,” said Aung San, resting under the trees of Island 115
with some 20 Moken men, women and children. “The life of the Moken is becoming harder and harder. So many Moken men are dying.” Asked if his people would welcome foreign visitors, the fisherman and trader replied, “We don’t want to live with the Burmese or other people. We want to live by ourselves.” The for mer military rulers of long-isolated Myanmar kept the archipelago off-limits to foreign visitors until 1996. A nom-
inally civilian government took over in 2011, but tourism remains relatively low. Some 2,000 tourists visited last year — that’s about 2.5 per island. To date only one hotel exists, the Myanmar Andaman Resort, tucked under forest cover deep within a U-shaped bay on McLeod Island. But a grab-the-best-island race is being run among Bur mese and foreign developers, with a dozen concessions already granted and others under negotiation.
The reefs and islands here range from rocky outcrops to extensive land masses of high hills pierced by caves and blanketed by luxuriant vegetation. A long jetty and two helicopter pads have been built and nine bungalows are under construction on the stunning but rather unwelcomely named Chin Kite Kyunn — Mosquito Bite Island. It is leased by Tay Za, believed to be Myanmar’s richest tycoon and closely connected with its power brokers. Three

security men and 11 lazy dogs are currently the island’s only inhabitants. The website of one development company, Singapore’s Zochwell Group, advertises the island it hopes to develop as “The Next Phuket.” Zochwell is negotiating a lease to build a marina, casino, hotels and a golf course to be designed by the company of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. Visitors, almost all traveling aboard yachts or dive boats, invariably fall under Mergui’s spell.
US schools add Vietnamese Toilet tech fair to dual immersion programs tackles global
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) — When Thuy Vo Dang came to the U.S. as a young girl, her English took off. Her parents sent her to Vietnamese school on the weekends to learn her native language, but she eventually had to study it in graduate school to become fully literate. Now, the 35-year -old mother of two and archivist for University of California, Irvine’s Southeast Asian Archive has been lobbying for her Southern California school district to start the state’s first dual immersion elementary school program in Vietnamese. She said she wants to help keep the language alive for the next generation. “I can see how quickly they’re forgetting their Vietnamese,” Vo Dang said of her 7-year-old daughter and 3-year -old son. “I would love if this were available for him when he starts kindergarten.” The move to expand the use of Vietnamese in socalled dual immersion programs comes as the children of refugees who fled the aftermath of the Vietnam War are coming of age and striving to preserve the language for their American children. Nearly 1.9 million people of Vietnamese heritage live in the U.S., and a third were born here, according to census data. In the last few years, schools in Texas and Washington have begun Vietnamese language dual immersion programs. Another is planned for Oregon in the fall and the Garden Grove Unified School District, which covers the area where Vo Dang lives, voted last month to consider starting

a program in one of the country’s largest Vietnamese immigrant enclaves. Dual immersion programs teach students subjects ranging from math to social studies in English and another language. Classes are usually split between English speakers and English learners so that children model the languages for each other and work in pairs and groups to help each other with assignments. Instructional time is split between the two languages depending on the program design and the age of the students. Most programs start in kinder-
garten and run through elementary school. In the last few years, dual immersion programs have taken off across the country, said Julie Sugarman, senior research associate at the Center for Applied Linguistics. Several hundred programs were created during the 1990s, many of them in Spanish, and more recently the model has expanded to more languages, she said. In Vietnamese communities, the programs target children who are native speakers of the language, but also the children and grandchildren of Vietnamese immigrants who may be stronger in Eng-
lish, and families with no background in Vietnamese who want to learn. As immigration from Vietnam has slowed since the war, the number of English-speaking Vietnamese American children has grown. Elders have worked to pass on the language by offering Vietnamese classes on the weekends. The number of students taking the extracurricular classes in Southern California has doubled to 15,000 in the last 15 years, said Quyen Di Chuc Bui, chair of the training committee for the Association of Vietnamese Language and Culture Schools.
NEW DELHI (AP) — Who would have expected a toilet to one day filter water, charge a cellphone or create charcoal to combat climate change? These are lofty ambitions beyond what most of the world’s 2.5 billion people with no access to modern sanitation would expect. Yet, scientists and toilet innovators around the world say these are exactly the sort of goals needed to improve global public health amid challenges such as poverty, water scarcity and urban growth. Scientists who accepted the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s challenge to reinvent the toilet showcased their inventions in the Indian capital Saturday. The primary goal: to sanitize waste, use minimal water or electricity, and produce a usable product at low cost. The World Bank estimates the annual global cost of poor sanitation at $260 billion, including loss of life, missed work, medical bills and other related factors. India alone accounts for $54 billion — more than the entire GDP of Kenya or Costa Rica. India is by far the worst culprit, with more than 640 million people defecating in the open and producing a stunning 72,000 tons of human waste each day — the equivalent weight of almost 10 Eiffel Towers or 1,800 humpback whales. Pooping in public is so acceptable that many Indians will do it on sidewalks or in open fields. Gaze out the window of any Indian train and face a line of bare bottoms doing their busi-
ness on the tracks. Meanwhile, diarrheal diseases kill 700,000 children every year, most of which could have been prevented with better sanitation.
“In the West, such things are a nuisance, but people don’t lose their lives,” said Christopher Elias, president of global development at the Gates Foundation. “People don’t immediately realize the damage done by infections coming from human waste.”
India has been encouraging rural communities to build toilets, and last year launched a $1.6 billion program to help. But building sanitation systems in developing countries is not easy. Flush toilets are not always an option. Many poor communities live in water-stressed areas. Others lack links to sewage pipes or treatment plants.
To be successful, scientists said, the designs being exhibited at Saturday’s Toilet Fair had to go beyond treating urine and feces as undesirable waste, and recognize them as profit-generating resources for electricity, fertilizer or fuel.
“T raditionally, people have gone into communities and said, ‘Let’s dig you a pit.’ That’s seen as condescension, a token that isn’t very helpful. After all, who is going to clean that pit?” said M. Sohail, professor of sustainable infrastructure at Loughborough University in the U.K. All the designs are funded by Gates Foundation grants and in various stages of development.

Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation turns 20 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steven Spielberg isn’t planning on making any more Holocaust movies. The Oscar -winning director is leaving that to the Shoah Foundation. After “Schindler’s List,” Spielberg turned his lens on real survivors of the World War II Jewish genocide through his foundation, which has since filmed nearly 52,000 testimonies from Holocaust survivors around the world. As the organization turns 20, it has expanded its mission to include interviews with survivors of other genocides, including those in Armenia, Cambodia and Rwanda. Spielberg was inspired to create the foundation after meeting so many Holocaust survivors while making “Schindler’s List,” which tells the story of a German businessman who used his Nazi ties to rescue 1,100 Jews from the Holocaust. The film’s greatest legacy isn’t its seven Oscars, $300 million in worldwide box office or even its message of humanity, says the 67year-old, but the ongoing work of the Shoah Foundation. “It literally popped into my head on the drive back to my house in Krakow after a day of shooting the film that if ‘Schindler’s List’ had any success at all, the success would not be a monetary, commercial one, but the success would be that this film would open a door for me to start taking as many testimonies as humanly possible,” Spielberg said in a telephone interview Monday on behalf of the organization, now known as USC Shoah Founda-
tion — The Institute for Visual History and Education. He also wrote the introduction for a book commemorating its 20th anniversary, “Testimony: The Legacy of Schindler’s List and the USC Shoah Foundation,” which will be released next week. Spielberg, who riled the film industry last year when he predicted “an implosion” of the Hollywood studio system spawned by mega-budget flops, declined to address those comments. But would a studio invest in a film like “Schindler’s List” today? “I have my own studio, so I would have just paid for it,” he said. “That’s how ‘Lincoln’ got made.” His ongoing investment in the Shoah Foundation, though, may be the filmmaker’s most meaningful. “I’m very proud of this legacy,” he said. “I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world.” Amid his roster of projects, Spielberg stays close to the organization: “I’m basically like a doctor on call. I have everything but a beeper on my belt. When they need me, I’m there.” When he started the foundation in 1994, he just wanted to collect survivor testimonies to help silence the Holocaust deniers who’d popped up during the making of “Schindler’s List.” He never expected to get nearly 51,413 accounts in 34 languages from 58 countries. “Movies at least have taught me that I don’t have to be realistic about anything,” he said. Says Shoah’s executive director, Stephen D. Smith: “Steven
Roswell Daily Record
Spielberg is the only person I know who had both the integrity and the vision to do it.”
As the collection grew, the foundation incorporated education and outreach. The digital archive is vastly searchable, down to the name, date, location and specific keyword. Spielberg also personally visits schools to talk about the survivor testimonies, though he admits the teenage students are initially more interested in discussing “E.T.” and Indiana Jones. “They want to talk about the movies first, and we have a really nice conversation about the movies, and then we go right into this,” Spielberg said.
“I think if you put ‘E.T.’ on a monitor, and they hadn’t seen it since they were kids, and on the same monitor you put a testimony from a Hungarian survivor, the young person will watch the testimony and not watch ‘E.T.’,” he continued. “Because I think the testimony is relevant and analogous today, even in the lives of young people at home or in the school yard. It hits home.” That response, he said, gives him hope.
“It just restored my real faith in all these new generations that at the core of all of their values, everybody starts out as a good person,” he said. “(The testimony) reaches and presses the button of the decency in all of us. The decency, the compassion and the pro-action to want to make the world a better place. Not just in young people, in everybody.”

Anita Hill in spotlight again as new film opens Cat behaviorist NEW YORK (AP) — It’s been more than 22 years since Anita Hill sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee in that famous bright blue suit — one she could never bring herself to wear again — to make the sexual harassment allegations against Clarence Thomas that transfixed a nation. And much has changed since then. But not everything. “I hope you rot in hell,” went an email that Hill, now 57 and a professor at Brandeis University, received just a few weeks ago from a member of the public. After all this time? “Yes,” Hill says, with a resigned air. “As they go, this one was fairly mild. But it happens. And it’ll happen again.” Especially now. The softspoken Hill, who still speaks in the same calm, precise tone many remember from 1991, has for two decades been living a quiet academic life, occasionally venturing out to speak about sexual harassment but often declining interviews. But she’s about to enter the maelstrom again with the release Friday of a new documentary, “Anita,” by the Oscar -winning filmmaker Freida Mock. After years of declining requests to collaborate on a film about her experiences, she said yes.
tion, was passed with strong support.
“That happened in direct response to the growing realization of what the American public had seen in the hearings,” Greenberger contends.
This Oct. 11, 1991, file photo shows University of Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Why now? Hill says she was inspired by the reactions she was getting from people as the 20th anniversary of those Supreme Court confir mation hearings approached — particularly in 2010, when news broke that she’d received a voice mail from Thomas’ wife, Virginia, asking Hill to “consider an apology.” (That voice mail opens the film.) “People responded with outrage to that,” Hill says. “But even more, I realized that here we are 20 years later and the issues are still resonating — in the workplace, in universities, in the military. So if 1991 could help us start a conversation, how then can we move
this to another level? Because clearly we haven’t eliminated the problem.” Experts agree the problem surely hasn’t been eliminated. But many cite Hill’s testimony as a landmark event, in both social and legal terms. “Back then, this was an invisible issue, until Anita testified,” says Marcia D. Greenberger, founder and co-president of the National Women’s Law Center. Not only did Hill’s testimony raise public consciousness about sexual harassment in the workplace, she says, and spur other women to make claims, but only months later, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, which addressed issues of employment discrimina-
It’s clear that Hill became, and remains, a heroine to many women. It’s also clear that while she doesn’t reject it, she remains somewhat uncomfortable with the status. In an interview at a Manhattan hotel, she seems almost more excited to discuss her work preparing a strategic plan for Brandeis than her public persona.
“In some ways I’m not very well suited, I think, for that position of heroine,” she says. “People do want that person who is sort of out there and vocal and adamant about who they are and what they want. But I wouldn’t be credible if I didn’t come to this with my own personality.”
Hill says that in her dayto-day life, “1991 just doesn’t figure in.” Case in point: At Brandeis, many of her students don’t even know about her past. Hill points out that her grad students were only children in 1991, and the undergrads weren’t even born. “It doesn’t bother me,” she says. “It’s important to help them focus on what their learning objectives are, and not on me as a person.”
Superman artwork of JFK makes it to his library BOSTON (AP) — Superman has finally soared into the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. Legendary comic book artist Al Plastino thought he donated the 10 handdrawn comic strips of Super man teaming up with John F. Kennedy decades ago, but the artwork somehow fell in the hands of a private owner. In December, comic book publisher DC Entertainment bought the blackand-white artwork and donated it to the library. Plastino died in November at the age of 91. His
four children, grandchildren and wife attended the exhibit opening on Thursday. “We are just thrilled that these came home to where they belong,” said his daughter MaryAnn Plastino Charles, who made the trek from Alabama. “This has been a longtime coming,” she said. “My father thought for so many years that it was here.” The 1964 story called “Superman’s Mission for President Kennedy,” was part of a White House initiative to promote the president’s national physical
The comic book was in production when Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963 and set aside until his successor, Lyndon Johnson, pressed for its publication. The published version said the story’s original artwork would be donated to the library, but that apparently never happened. Plastino was upset when he discovered that the original copies were not in the library, said his son Fred, who was with him at a New York Comic Con event in October when he heard the news.
heading to Oregon after family attack
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The large cat that attacked a baby and trapped an Oregon family in a bedroom touched off an Internet uproar that worries Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell.” Cats don’t become ferocious felines that turn on their families for no reason, says the cat behavior expert, who is heading to Portland soon to work with the 4-year-old partHimalayan pet named Lux. Galaxy will film the visit for his show’s fifth season, which kicks off April 26. “Every parental site on the Internet blames the cat for this confrontation. Every pet site blames the family,” he said, adding that something is wrong if the cat is acting out. “We need to step away from the hysteria. There is a story behind all this. Don’t assume anything.” Lux became a worldwide phenomenon after owner Lee Palmer called 911 and said the cat had cor nered him, his girlfriend, their baby and the family dog inside a room. Palmer says his 7month-old pulled Lux’s tail, and he kicked the animal after it scratched the child. Then, the cat “just went of f over the edge,” Palmer told an emergency dispatcher after the family barricaded themselves. “He’s charging us,” Palmer said, as the cat was heard screeching in the background. Officers arrived and caught Lux with a dog snare. Palmer said the cat had a history of violence, but the family kept Lux until Monday, when they turned him over to a Portland-area shelter. But the family assured Animal Planet they were going to keep the cat and agreed to therapy with Galaxy. Palmer didn’t return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment Tuesday. There are many reasons a cat can turn aggressive,
and there is no universal way to deal with it, Galaxy said. But the star feline behaviorist provided five ways to tame out-of-control cats: — Never leave a young child unsupervised with a cat. — Take it to a vet at least once a year. If a cat is acting suspiciously, the owner needs to pay attention. “Know what suspicious looks like,” Galaxy said. “If they’re not feeling well, cats will socially withdraw themselves, or they will lose weight, or they will gain weight, or they’ll be howling in the middle of the night when they never did before. “I’ve known cats who acted out similarly to Lux because of an abscessed tooth, a brain tumor, hyperthyroidism or diabetes.” — Make sure cats can literally climb out of a situation. Having a space up high, like a cat condo, to get away from children and other pets is crucial, Galaxy said. “Make sure the cat can make the choice to get away from the kid,” he said. — T imeouts are good things. “We associate timeouts with punishment, but in the world of cats, timeout is not a punishment.” They can go to a designated place where they can settle down, come back to a peaceful moment or ground themselves, he said. — Stop fights between felines with “timeout drills.” With simple pieces of cardboard, left strategically around the house, you can stop a fight between two cats. Put the cardboard between them, blocking their vision and providing a moment of disorientation when you can lead them to their timeout spot. It’s especially important to have the drills with aggressive cats. Galaxy said he was going to Portland to act as Lux’s advocate and find out what’s wrong.

25 years later, Exxon Valdez spill effects linger ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Before the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, there was the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska, at the time the nation’s largest oil spill. The 987-foot tanker, carrying 53 million gallons of crude, struck Bligh Reef at 12:04 a.m. on March 24, 1989. Within hours, it unleashed an estimated 10.8 million gallons of thick, toxic crude oil into the water. Storms and currents then smeared it over 1,300 miles of shoreline. For a generation of people around the world, the spill was seared into their memories by images of fouled coastline in Prince William Sound, of sea otters, herring and birds soaked in oil, of workers painstakingly washing crude of f the rugged beaches. Twenty five years later, most of the species have recovered, said Robert Spies, a chief science adviser to governments on the oil spill restoration program from 1989 to 2002. But some wildlife, as well as the people who live in the region, are still struggling. Here’s a look at what’s changed since the spill: —FISHERMAN Bernie Culbertson was preparing to fish cod when the Exxon Valdez ran aground. With oil in the water, fishing came to a standstill and life for he and other fishermen drastically changed. “The bottom fell out of the price of fish,” he said. Pink salmon that sold for 80 cents per pound fell to 8 cents per pound. Consumers tur ned to far m fish or tuna out of fear of tainted salmon. His boat caught 2.5 million pound of pinks one season and lost money. Culbertson tur ned to other fisheries, traveling

In this April 4, 1989, file photo, the grounded tanker Exxon Valdez, left, unloads oil onto a smaller tanker, San Francisco, as efforts to re-float the ship continue on Prince William Sound, 25 miles from Valdez, Alaska. The 987-foot tanker, carrying 53 million gallons of crude, struck Bligh Reef at 12:04 a.m. on March 24, 1989, and within hours unleashed an estimated 10.8 million gallons of thick, toxic crude oil into the water. Storms and currents then smeared it over 1,300 miles of shoreline. Twenty five years later, the region, its people and its wildfire are still recovering.
as far as California. Fishing 12 months a year, his marriage failed. Friends couldn’t repay loans and lost boats or homes. Exxon compensation checks, minus what fisher men ear ned on spill work, arrived too late for many. The fisheries today are not the same. “The shrimp are slowly, slowly coming back. The crab aren’t back. The herring aren’t back. The salmon are back in abundance,” he said. —INDUSTRY At the time of the spill, complacency among government officials and the oil industry had set in after a dozen years of safe shipments, said Mark Swanson, director of the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council and a for mer
Coast Guard officer. When the tanker ran aground, for instance, spill response equipment was buried under snow. Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. in 1989 had 13 oil skimmers, five miles of boom and storage capacity for 220,000 gallons of spilled oil. Now, Alyeska has 108 skimmers, 49 miles of boom and on-water storage capacity of almost 38 million gallons. North Slope oil must be transported in double-hull tankers, which must be escorted by two tugs. Radar monitors the vessel’s position as well as that of icebergs. The company conducts two major spill drills are conducted each year. And nearly 400 local fishing boat owners are trained to
deploy and maintain boom —PACIFIC HERRING After the spill, the population of herring crashed. It is now listed as “not recovering.” The silvery fish is a key species because it is eaten by salmon, seabirds and marine mammals from otters to whales. Four years after the spill, the estimated herring population based on modeling shrunk from 120 metric tons to less than 30 metric tons. How that happened remains a question, said Scott Pegau, research program manager for the Oil Spill Recovery Institute in Cordova, Alaska. Here’s what’s known: Adult herring feed on zooplankton, which crashed for three years after the spill. With less to eat, her-
ring may have been more susceptible to disease normally fended off within a herring population. Herring populations can stabilize at a low or high number, but something has prevented a rebound. Oil likely is no longer a factor, Pegau said. —SEA OTTERS Responders estimated that as many as 3,000 sea otters died the first year. Hundreds more died in the years after of exposure to oil that persisted in sediment, where otters dig for clams. Three factors could have had an impact on the otters’ ability to survive. Oiled fur loses insulating value. Otters ingest oil as they groom, and researchers years after the spill found blood chemistry evidence consistent
with liver damage. Grooming takes time away from feeding. “One of the lessons we can take from this is that the chronic effects of oil in the environment can persist for decades,” said Brenda Ballachey, who moved to Alaska a few months after the spill and spent the next summer dissecting sea otter carcasses collected from beaches and frozen. The U.S. Geological Survey research biologist is the lead author of a federal study released last month that concludes that sea otters have finally returned to pre-spill numbers. —PIGEON GUILLEMOTS The pigeon guillemot (GEEL’-ah-mot), which looks like a black pigeon with web feet, is one species that has not recovered. Numbers were declining before the spill. An estimated 2,000 to 6,000 guillemots, or 10 to 15 percent of the population in spill areas, died from acute oiling. Researchers suspect river otters, mink and other predators targeted guillemot eggs as an alternative to foraging on oiled beaches. Like sea otters and another bird that took years to recover, harlequin ducks, pigeon guillemot’s forage for invertebrates in sediment and likely were affected by lingering oil, said David Irons, a seabirds expert with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The decline of its other prey, juvenile herring, didn’t help. Numbers continue to decline in both oiled and non-oiled areas. Irons has proposed reducing mink numbers on the heavily oiled Naked Islands, once prime habitat for guillemots, to restore their numbers.
With health law, Chew on this: Gum loses its pop workers ponder the I-Quit option
CHICAGO (AP) — For uninsured people, the nation’s new health care law may offer an escape from worry about unexpected, astronomical medical bills. But for Stephanie Payne of St. Louis, who already had good insurance, the law could offer another kind of escape: the chance to quit her job. At 62, Payne has worked for three decades as a nurse, most recently traveling house to house caring for 30 elderly and disabled patients. But she’s ready to leave that behind, including the job-based health benefits, to move to Oregon and promote her self-published book. She envisions herself blogging, doing radio interviews and speaking to seniors groups. “I want the freedom to fit that into my day without squeezing it into my day,” she said. One of the selling points of the new health care plan, which has a March 31 enrollment deadline, is that it breaks the link between affordable health insurance and having a job with benefits. Payne believes she’ll be able to replace her current coverage with a $400- to $500-amonth plan on Oregon’s version of the new insurance exchange system set up under the law. Federal experts believe the new insurance option will be a powerful temptation for a lot of job-weary workers ready to bail out. Last month, congressional budget analysts estimated that within 10 years, the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time workers could be working less because of the expanded coverage. But is the new option a gamble? That’s a matter of debate, not only among the politicians who are still arguing furiously over the law’s merits, but among economists and industry experts. “We don’t know what the future of exchange insurance will be,” said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum, a center-right public policy institute. Premiums should remain stable if enrollment picks up and broadens to include younger, healthier people. But if older, sicker people are the vast majority of customers, prices eventually could spike. For Mike Morucci, 50, the idea of leaving his information technology job and its health benefits is “terrifying,” he said. But he decided to take the plunge after reviewing the range of coverage available at different price points. Tax credits will help those with moderate incomes pay their insurance premiums. And coverage is guaranteed even for those with pre-existing conditions. Twenty-five states also agreed to expand their Medicaid programs, providing health care for more low-income people. “It definitely freed up my thinking when I thought, ‘Do I want to give this a go?”’ Morucci, of Ellicott City, Md.
NEW YORK (AP) — Gum seems as appealing as that sticky wad on the bottom of a shoe these days. It’s not that Americans don’t ever enjoy a stick of Trident or Orbit, the two most popular brands. They just aren’t as crazy about chomping away on the stuf f as they once were, with U.S. sales tumbling 11 percent over the past four years. No one in the industry can pinpoint a single factor that’s causing the decline — the theories include an unwillingness to shell out $2 or more for a pack in the bad economy or that advertising veered too far from underlining gum’s cavity-fighting benefits. But the biggest reason may be that people simply have more to chew on. From designer mints to fruit chews, candy companies have invented plenty of other ways to get a sugar fix or battle bad breath and anxiety. The
alternatives don’t come with gum’s unpleasant characteristics either, like the question of whether to spit out or gulp the remains. They’re also less likely to annoy parents, co-workers or romantic interests. “You talk to someone and they’re just chomping on gum,” said Matt Smith, a 46-year -old who lives Albany, N.Y. and hates gum so much he refers to it only by its first letter. “If you substitute gum for any other food, like mashed potatoes, would you find that acceptable? It’s disgusting.” The gum chewing habit dates as far back as the ancient Greeks but arrived in the U.S. in its modern form in the 1860s, according to Mars Inc., the No. 1 player in the market with its Wrigley unit. Over the years, gum makers positioned it as a way to “Kiss a Little Longer” in the famous Big

Red jingle, quit smoking, curb cravings or just make the chewer happier. Catchy slogans or characters included the “Doublemint Twins” and Orbit’s blonde spokeswoman who ends commercials with “Dirty mouth? Clean it up.” It popped up in pop culture too. In the 1960s, a genre of music aimed at younger audiences came
to be known as “Bubblegum.” In the 1975 movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” the silent Chief Bromden speaks for the first time saying, “Mmm, Juicy Fruit” after the character played by Jack Nicholson gives him a stick of the gum. And Janet Jackson played a feisty, gum-chewing beautician in the 1993 film “Poetic Justice.”
Veterans’ unemployment edges down but still high WASHINGTON (AP) — New Labor Department figures show the unemployment rate for working-age veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces since September 2001 edged down slightly in 2013, to 9.0 percent. But Thursday’s report also found that the rate remained well above the overall civilian unemployment figure of 6.7 percent. The decrease followed a decline to 9.9 percent in 2012. The statistics cover veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces at any time since September 2001, a group referred to as Gulf War-era veterans. Still, the number was far higher than overall unemployment levels in the United States, which averaged
7.4 percent in 2013 and finished the year with a 6.7 percent overall rate for December. The overall unemployment rate was also 6.7 percent in February 2014. The youngest veterans, aged 1824, had an extremely high jobless rate, 21.4 percent, the study showed. The report by the agency’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said that the overall unemployment rate for all veterans still considered in the work force, including those from earlier periods, was 6.6 percent for all of 2013, down from 7.0 percent the year before. Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez noted that the 6.6 percent level represented “an encouraging drop” from previous years and urged the
nation’s employers to hire more veterans. “Veterans have the skills that employers are looking for. They make our nation’s workforce more productive, our companies more profitable and our economy more competitive. Smart businesses recruit veterans because it’s in their self-interest, because they know it’s a sound investment in their bottom line,” Perez said. Twenty-nine percent of veterans serving since 2001 reported having a service-connected disability as of last August, compared with 15 percent of all veterans. In 2013, 21.4 million men and women, or 9 percent of the general population age 18 and over were veterans, the report said.
C6 Sunday, March 23, 2014 DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Caleb,” and I have been dating for three years. I’m sure he’ll propose within the next few months. I’m having a problem with this because Caleb’s best friend, “A.J.,” will be proposing to his girlfriend in the next month. They should be able to enjoy their time and let all their friends know. Caleb has always followed A.J.’s lead. When A.J. buys his girlfriend jewelry, I get jewelry. It makes me feel like an afterthought and that the gifts are not sincere. If Caleb does propose close to the time that A.J. does, I’m going
to say no. I don’t want a copycat engagement so my boyfriend can keep up with his best friend. Please advise. COMING IN SECOND IN NEW YORK
DEAR COMING IN SECOND: You appear to be frustrated because your boyfriend has a recessive personality and is a follower. It is unlikely that he is going to change. Frankly, Caleb doesn’t appear to be mature enough to be making decisions with lifelong consequences. You might be much happier with someone who is his own man. ##### DEAR ABBY: A year and a half ago, my doctor diagnosed me with ADHD. The medication I take is a stimulant and it curbs my appetite. I take it before school and it wears off by mid-afternoon. Because of this, I don’t feel hungry at lunchtime. My teachers and schoolmates have noticed. They try to persuade me to eat, but I tell them I had a big breakfast or I’m just not hun-
gry. I know they mean well, but I want them to understand that I’m not anorexic. I don’t want them to know I have ADHD because some of them make fun of people who do. Do you have any suggestions? ANONYMOUS IN IOWA
DEAR ANONYMOUS: The principal of your school should be told that you are on doctor-prescribed medication that suppresses your appetite so that information can be shared with the teachers who supervise the cafeteria. That way you will receive less pressure to eat from the adults. Your classmates do not have to know. If someone accuses you of being anorexic, just say that your doctor has told you your weight is normal. It’s a shame they would tease someone who has ADHD because it’s a condition that so many students and adults share. However, because you feel it would make you a target, you’re wise to say nothing. #####
DEAR ABBY: My husband is an only son. His mother lives an hour from us. I love her dearly, but when she calls to let us know she’s coming to visit on any given Saturday, she won’t give us a time of her arrival. She says she “doesn’t want to be bound by time” because she runs a lot of errands while she’s here. She doesn’t appear to notice the inconvenience to me and my active family, who are bound to our house the entire day, waiting for her to show up. My husband brushes it off, but it frustrates me. How should I handle this in a kindly manner? STILL WAITING IN TEXAS
DEAR STILL WAITING: The next time your mother-inlaw calls, ask her when she plans to be at your house because you have errands to run, too. When she says she doesn’t want to be bound by time, ask her to call you on your cellphone and let you know when she’s done with her errands and you’ll meet her at the house. That way, none of you are tied down or inconvenienced.
The Wizard of Id
KING FEATURES SYNDICATE Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUNDOFF, about wait staff and silverware: “I have been reading about the restaurant workers who use the same cloth to wash the tables and chairs. A worse problem I observed as I worked in restaurants is the silverware wrapped in napkins for placement on tables. Many workers, from wait staff to cashiers, wrap the silverware in any spare moment, especially during the busiest times, in order to keep up with large amounts of customers. I rarely saw staff wash their hands between handling money or other items and then wrapping the utensils. A Concerned Eater, via email”
Today’s Crossword Puzzle
For Better or For Worse
Dear Readers: Here are some hints about items to keep handy in a guest room:
* A box of tissues and a wastebasket. * A small flashlight and a night light. * A few small snacks, or even fruit. * Travel-size toiletries in a bathroom. * Books and magazines for reading.
Dear Heloise: My husband polishes his shoes on a regular basis. He, unfortunately, has gotten some shoe polish on a pair of pants. Do you have a hint that might help get the stain out? Laura in Texas I do have a suggestion! Wet the stain with cleaning fluid, then wash the garment with your normal detergent and warm water. You may need to repeat the process to completely remove the stain. If the shoe polish is a liquid, you might not be able to get it out. Want to know what other hints I have to get out hard stains? I have compiled a pamphlet with all of my favorites. To order, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Stains, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Have a mystery stain you need to get rid of? Flush it with cold water, then apply prewash spray. Rub into the stain until all traces are removed, then wash as normal. Heloise
Hagar the Horrible
Dear Heloise: I just read the note from a reader about loose tea. I also enjoy loose tea. The variety, and especially the quality, is much greater than what is available in tea bags. Empty tea bags are available from many sites. They are cheaper and easier to use than coffee filters, and can be filled ahead of time and taken to work or on trips. Mark in Alton, Illinois Dear Heloise: No matter how careful I am, I always manage to have an unmatched sock. I’ve learned to keep these socks around to use for quick dusting (place it on your hand like a glove) and to protect fragile items, like wine bottles, when I’m packing/wrapping them.

Wastewater from five dairy facilities (Pirtle Farms Dairy, Pirtle and Sons #2 Dairy, Nature's Dairy, Inc., Tom Visser Dairy, and Arroyo Dairy) is pumped via pipeline to Lift Station 1 (10,000-gallon underground fiberglass tank) located at Arroyo Dairy. Wastewater from Lift Station 1 and two dairy facilities (Double Aught Dairy and Three Amigos Dairy) are pumped to digester Lift Station 2 (15,000-gallon underground fiberglass tank). From Lift Station 2, wastewater is pumped to one of two approximately 13,000,000-gallon double synthetically lined anaerobic digester impoundments with leak detection systems. Wastewater from the anaerobic digester impoundments is pumped through a rotary press and ultra-filtration unit for solids separation prior to being discharged to a third approximately 13,000,000-gallon double synthetically lined wastewater impoundment with leak detection system for disposal by evaporation. Wastewater from the third impoundment is also discharged by center pivot to up to 230 acres of irrigated cropland under cultivation. Wastewater from the rotary press, ultra-filtration unit and concrete solids storage pad will be collected and pumped to Lift Station 2. Separated dewatered solids are contained, transported, and disposed of offsite in accordance with all local, state, and federal regulations. Potential contaminants associated with this type of discharge include nitrogen compounds. The facility is located at 6402 Price's Lane, approximately 10 miles northwest of Dexter, in Sections 1, 11, 12, and 15, T12S, R25E, and Sections 22, 32, 33 and 34, T11S, R25E, Chaves County. Ground water beneath the site is at a depth of approximately 51 feet and has a total dissolved solids concentration of approximately 2,410 milligrams per liter. NMED permit contact: Sara Arthur at (505) 827-9669 or email@example.com
Prior to ruling on any proposed Discharge Permit or its modification, the New Mexico Environment Department, (NMED) will allow thirty days after the date of publication of this notice to receive written comments and during which a public hearing may be requested by any interested person, including the applicant. Requests for public hearing shall be in writing and shall set forth the reasons why the hearing should be held. A hearing will be held If NMED determines that there is substantial public interest.

Curvy edifice in Seoul begs $450 million question SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A curvy futuristic $450 million building meant to remake Seoul into a global design capital opened to the South Korean public Friday after years of debate about its impact on a historic city precinct. And not everyone is happy with the outcome. Designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid, the Dongdaemun Design Plaza is a stark contrast to its neighborhood, which is better known in Seoul for its links to a royal dynasty that ruled for half a millennium and as home to one of the city’s oldest markets. Located in central Seoul, the Dongdaemun area bustles with shoppers and vendors day and night, selling trendy clothes at budget prices, textiles and a bewildering array of knickknacks. It lacks the glitz and glamor of Seoul’s trendy Gangnam district, made world famous by the rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style” hit. But locals and tourists alike find charm in Dongdaemun’s lively stores and nearby vintage markets, scenes recalling an older Seoul that is quickly disappearing. Hadid’s signature flowing curves impart a sense of calm to the imposing steel structure that along with a plaza occupies 63,000 square meters (15.6 acres). At night, the edifice is illuminated with soft LED lights in contrast to the garish neon signs in the neighborhood. The building is a legacy of the mayoralty of Oh Se-hoon, who opposed welfare and pushed landmark construction projects to redesign Seoul and boost its economy. It cost about 2.4 percent of the city’s annual budget, putting it among the most expensive architectural endeavors ever commissioned by
Dongdaemun Design Plaza is seen in downtown Seoul, South Korea, Friday. The $450 million building funded by Seoul citizen's tax money finally opened to public on Friday after years of debates about transforming a historic area with an ultra-modern architecture. Seoul. Oh resigned as mayor in 2011, but the Plaza is set to remain a source of debate for years to come. Debate will not be limited to the structure’s futuristic look that has drawn scor n and admiration. Some called it an ugly spaceship that made an emergency landing while others praised its architectural accomplishment, using few columns and 45,000 tiles to cover its surface. As part of the official launch, Dongdaemun Design Plaza is hosting the six-day Seoul Fashion Week and eight art exhibitions. Yet the city is still figuring out how to fill the multilevel building which has a larg-
er floor area than the Louvre’s exhibition space. Its first test is to cover estimated annual operating costs of 32 billion won ($30 million). Seoul mayor Park Won-soon said the Plaza will host conferences, concerts, exhibitions and design-related businesses. Some in Seoul question whether compromises they felt forced to make were worth it. Sports officials and baseball fans had opposed demolishing an 80-year-old sports stadium to give way to the sleek building that Oh, the former mayor, said would make Seoul the world’s design capital. The stadium, which can now only be seen in a few vestiges, was Korea’s first and sole mod-
ern sports stadium until the 1980s, hosting highly popular high-school baseball matches and the first games of Korea’s professional baseball and football leagues. “DDP is a beautiful work of architecture,” said Kim Eunsik, a 40-year -old writer who used to attend baseball games in Dongdaemun and explored the neighborhood’s alleys as a teenager. “But I feel sad and empty as it replaces something that was endearing and joyful to me,” said Kim. “It does not seem like the sacrifice has produced something valuable.” About 900 merchants who had to relocate their shops and carts to another area to make space for the Plaza hoped the
launch would boost visitors as the city had promised, said Park No-keum, head of the merchants association. He said they moved out during economic good times when their businesses were at a peak. Some of the anger about the Plaza was heaped on Hadid, a superstar architect who is behind the design of the main stadium for the 2020 T okyo Olympics and the first female winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize. It was also derided as a product of South Korean insecurity. Commissioning Hadid is “like having a handbag from Hermes,” said Daniel Tudor, author of “Korea: The Impossible Country,” referencing the popularity of luxury bags as a status symbol in South Korea. Many Koreans think “if we have a certain GDP, nice shiny buildings then we can show foreigners that we became a developed country,” he said. While an impressive architectural accomplishment, Dongdaemun Design Plaza is also an embarrassing reminder how South Korea favored something fancy and new over its cultural heritage, said Pai Hyungmin, an architecture professor at University of Seoul. He regrets that Seoul, under the former mayor, moved historic ruins discovered during construction. The Joseon Dynasty that ruled the Korean peninsula from 1392 to 1897 trained its elite troops at Dongdaemun, which in Korean means the east gate of Seoul fortress. “If we want to restore the place’s history there are still a lot of things we can do,” said Pai.
